Arsenal have confirmed that one of the club’s young defenders is set to leave the club for a loan move to the Championship.

Unai Emery was certainly a busy man this summer as he secured the acquisitions of five new players before the start of the new season last weekend.

The new Arsenal manager is aware that with the transfer window not completely closed outside of the Premier League, there is still an opportunity to trim down his squad for the campaign.

Thus, the Gunners have confirmed that Krystian Bielik has agreed to complete a loan move to Charlton Athletic for the remainder of the season.

The young Polish defender, who moved to north London during the reign of former boss Arsene Wenger, has found it very difficult to break into the first team so far.

Bielik’s transfer to Charlton is expected to be one of several outgoing deals the club will agree before the end of this month.
