Gillingham chairman Paul Scally has confirmed teenager Luke Freeman is on the verge of completing a move to Arsenal.

The 15-year-old striker has attracted interest from several Barclays Premier League sides - including Newcastle and West Ham - since rising to prominence earlier this season, but now appears set to join the Gunners.

"We have agreed in principal a deal for Luke to go to Arsenal," said Scally.
