Stevenage have signed Arsenal youngster Luke Freeman on loan until 8 January, with the view to an extension.

The 19-year-old scored twice in 13 league games during a spell with Yeovil last season.

The Gunners signed the forward from Gillingham in 2008, after he had made three Gills appearances.

While at the Priestfield Stadium he became the youngest ever player to feature in the FA Cup proper, playing against Barnet in November 2007.

He was aged 15 years and 233 days at time and came on as an 83rd-minute substitute in the 2-1 loss.
