'You were my favourite': Some Arsenal fans react as 23-year-old confirms he's joined a new club
Arsenal fans have wished Ben Sheaf well after the Hale End graduate confirmed his move away from Emirates Stadium.
The 23-year-old holding midfielder joined the Gunners ranks in 2014.
He went on to make two first-team appearances in red and white.
Sheaf made his debut in October 2017, coming on for Francis Coquelin in the Europa League trip to Red Star Belgrade.
His other first team appearance was in the League Cup in December 2017, as a substitute in the quarter-final tie against West Ham.
Much of Sheaf’s time at Arsenal was spent in the age ranks, making 60 appearances for the Under-23s.
Sheaf also took in loans at Stevenage and Doncaster prior to his stint at Coventry, who have now signed him permanently.
He made 32 appearances for the Midlands side last season and has now penned a three-year contract with them.
On Thursday, Sheaf took to Twitter with a message for Arsenal and the club’s fans.
And plenty of supporters wished him all the best.
