Theo Walcott Sold For £12M

Sat Jan 21, 2006 3:14 am

Well Arsenal have finally signed our 16 year old starlet for a record £12M, though they are only putting £5M up front.

Its very disapointing for the Saints as we have been nuturing him since he was 11 but as he was not allowed to sign a professional contract until he was 17 we risked losing him for peanuts.

He has still got lots to learn but after all he is young, though there is no doubt that he has the talent to be one of the best in the world. There are rumours of him being in the world cup squad though I think that its probably too early for that.

Watch out for him because he is going to impress.

Yep. As a Gunner I'm pleased they have signed him and as you say he can be one of the best in the world. It's a shame that Southampton are unable to keep these youngsters that they nurture so well

I am also a Gunner and am delighted. It is great that during the past week we have signed 3 players all of whom rejected overtures from Chavski - demonstrating that young players have more faith in Arsenal than Spartak Chelsea to develop them...

I can see why you would be frustrated as a Saint, but I am sure TW will play a lot, so you should get the £12m, which is not bad going.
