Arsenal could lose their new Liam Brady

I think you already know how highly I rate Conor Henderson, AKA the new Liam Brady. Well, I don't know if it's good or bad news, but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger seems to agree with me, judging by what the youngster has revealed to the Irish Independent.

I'm not sure what Wenger is thinking of, though, as at this rate we'll lose Henderson for next to nothing (i.e. just compensation for his development). We could be in a similar state with Craig Eastmond, whose contract expires next season, according to the Transfer Markt website.

But at least Eastmond has been included in Arsenal's Premier League squad, which appears below, albeit mainly because he has to be named now that he's FA-officially over 21 years of age.
