As reported previously, Arsenal youngster Luke Plange was on the verge of joining Derby County and it appears the forward has now officially put pen to paper with the Rams.

Images have surfaced of the 18-year-old signing a deal, donning the Derby training kit.

Plange has wasted no time settling in either, scoring in two consecutive games; a 3-3 draw with Manchester City and most recently a 3-2 victory over Stoke City, both in U18s action.

Queens Park Rangers also showed an interest in signing Plange, but the striker has picked a move to the Rams.

Having already had experience training with the Arsenal first team, the teenager will certainly have first team aspirations in sight.

We have seen countless youth products involved with the Rams’ first team training sessions and squad this season with Wayne Rooney making it clear, if you’re good enough you’re old enough.

Could Plange be the next academy starlet to break into the first team?
