Arsenal starlet Kyle Ebecilio has made an impressive start to his career at the Emirates.

The teenage Dutchman signed professional forms with the Gunners back in February, putting pen to paper after originally moving to England from Feyenoord in the summer.

A technically gifted midfielder, the 17-year-old has impressed in the club's academy side and earned several chances with the second string after making his debut at the start of the month.

Ebecilio recognises the physical element of the game in this country, but believes the technically high standards set at the Emirates has helped him settle into life in north London.

“English football is more physical and Dutch football is more technical but Arsenal is very similar to the technical standard I was used to at Feyenoord,” he told the official Arsenal website.

A powerful midfielder who can also make a challenge, the player describes himself like a former legend at Arsenal, and if Ebecilio can have an impact similar to the Frenchman then his future looks bright with Arsene Wenger's side.

“I like to get forward and attack like Patrick Vieira,” the player concluded.

An unused substitute in the 2-1 win against Liverpool reserves yesterday, Ebecilio will hope for more chances to impress in the future.
