Arsenal starlet Vlad Dragomir suffers knee injury

It is the same old story for Arsenal. Soon after signing an unknown prodigy from a distant European league they are having to get their medical team focused on getting him back to full fitness.

While Arsene Wenger's failure to sign a senior outfield player in the summer transfer window was well documented, the academy recruitment drive was in full throttle.

Vlad Dragomir, the current captain of Romania's Under-16 side, signed from ACS Poli Timisoara for a fee of £71,000. He joined almost a dozen other youth players to boost both the Under-18 and Under-21 sides at Arsenal.

However, it appears the 16-year-old may be set for a slight delay in his rise to prominence after posting a picture of himself on crutches on his official Instagram account. The picture was accompanied, in true teenage fashion, by a sad emoticon.

He will join first-team stars Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck in the treatment room. Wilshere is still struggling with a hairline fracture in his left leg while Welbeck is recovering from surgery on a knee problem.

Registration issues

Everyone concerned with Arsenal will be hoping Dragomir's injury is not a serious one, but thanks to a problem with his registration, his absence will not be felt by the Arsenal youth teams.

According to GiveMeSport contributor Jeorge Bird, a delay in FIFA's registration of the transfer has so far prevented Dragomir from making his debut for the Gunners.

That would have been a source of great frustration for both the player and Arsenal coaches with this injury news only adding to it.
