Arsenal youngster Joseph Olowu extends Cork City loan spell


Cork City have reached an agreement with Arsenal to extend their loan of defender Joseph Olowu until the end of the season. 

Olowu moved to Turner's Cross in February and impressed before the League of Ireland campaign was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"I was enjoying my time at the club when the season was suspended," he told Cork City's website.

"Everyone made me feel very welcome at the club, and I felt I was settling in well. It has been a frustrating few months, but I am very pleased that this is all sorted and I can focus on getting back on the pitch with the club for the rest of the season."

The 20-year-old had been due to return to the Gunners last month but City boss Neale Fenn is happy to have the Nigerian for the rest of the season:

"Joseph came in quite late, but he was one of our better performers in the opening games of the season.

"We were pleased with how he was doing and felt he was progressing well but, as everyone knows, everything then ground to a halt.

"We've had a number of conversations with Arsenal during the shut-down, and they were very pleased with how he had been doing here, so they were happy for him to stay and try to continue the progress he had made in those first few games."
