Pool land Gunners starlet

Blackpool have signed Arsenal starlet Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on a month's loan. Emmanuel-Thomas has come through the ranks at Arsenal and is highly-regarded by the Gunners coaching staff. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is willing to loan out the midfielder so that he can get some regular first-team action under his belt as he continues his development. Emmanuel-Thomas, who has yet to make his senior debut for Arsenal, was on the bench for last season's win over Portsmouth and also captained the youth team to FA Youth Cup glory last season. The 18-year-old watched Blackpool's 1-1 draw with Cardiff at the weekend and the club have now tied up his loan switch.
