Prior to the start of 2016, Rangers manager Mark Warburton stated his desire to hold on to Gedion Zelalem for the remainder of the season. On Wednesday, he got his wish.
After joining the club on loan to start the 2015-16 season, Zelalem will remain with the Scottish club as Arsenal announced on Wednesday that the midfielder’s loan has been extended until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old has played a role in the Scottish side’s surge to the top of the second division, making 15 appearances and tallying three assists so far this season.
Zelalem will be looking to carry over this fine club form to the U-23s in March, as the U.S. team faces off against Colombia to qualify for the 2016 Olympics.
What do you think of Zelalem’s extension? How do you expect him to fare through the rest of the season?
