ARSENAL youngster Matt Smith has joined Swindon on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old midfielder had linked up with Mikel Arteta’s first-team squad towards the end of the season.
He was part of the FA Cup winning group two-weeks ago, but has not made an appearance for the Gunners senior side yet.
Matt went to Burnt Mil Academy.
Arteta wants the academy product to get more action, with the League One side beating a host of clubs to his signature.
Smith impressed for the Arsenal Under-23s this season, and scored once in 12 Premier League 2 matches.
He will now join Gunners youth team-mates Zech Medley and Trae Coyle in League One, after they completed their loan moves to Gillingham.
