ARSENAL centre-half Semi Ajayi is on trial with Sunderland and impressed in a run-out for the Under-21s yesterday.

Ajayi played the full 90 minutes for the U21s at the Academy of Light in yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Norwich and caught the eye with an assured performance in defence.

The 21-year-old joined the Gunners on a free transfer in the summer of 2013 and has been on the bench this season, although he is yet to make his first-team bow for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Sunderland are now taking a closer look at Ajayi, with his Arsenal contract due to expire in the summer.
