Arsenal have recalled midfielder Miguel Azeez from his loan spell with Pompey.

The England under-20 international made 10 appearances after arriving at Fratton Park back in August.

His only goal during that time came in the 3-0 Papa John’s Trophy group stage victory over Crystal Palace U21s.

Blues boss Danny Cowley said: “We’ve got a brilliant relationship with Arsenal and have been in regular contact with them throughout the loan.

"I’m as excited as everyone else to see how he progresses and we wish him nothing but success moving forward."

“I believe this has been a fantastic stepping stone in Miguel’s journey – moving into a senior environment and playing League One football.

“I have absolutely no doubt that he’ll go on to become a top player and this will have been an important part of his development.

“He leaves here a better player and hopefully a better person. We’ve been impressed with his focus and commitment to improve.

“There are some areas of his game that are beyond this level and other areas that he needs to keep working at, as with any young player.

“I’m as excited as everyone else to see how he progresses and we wish him nothing but success moving forward.”
