The nine-year-old son of Manchester United star Ashley Young has signed a deal with…Arsenal.

Tyler Young penned a deal with the Gunners which will please his dad in one regard becaise Ashley grew up as an Arsenal fan.

The image of him signing with the club was tweeted by his mother Nicky Kelly Pike and retweeted by 28-year-old Ashley.

Kelly Pike and Young were engaged to be married in 2011 but the marriage was then called off.

It follows a trend of famous sons training with clubs not associated with their fathers.

Romeo Beckham had trial with Chelsea before signing youth forms with QPR, while Robin van Persie and Phil Neville's sons have trained with Manchester City.
