McEneff, who joined the Premier League outfit from Coleraine, was among the group of first year scholars that trained at Arsenal’s London Colney base yesterday.

The talented striker makes the step up from schoolboy level and will be hoping to continue his development during the 2017/18 season with the Gunners’ U18 side.

McEneff, the younger brother of former Derry City midfielder Aaron, who was also on the books at Tottenham, represented Northern Ireland at underage level before switching his international allegiance to the Republic earlier this year.

He marked his debut for the Boys in Green by scoring the winner against Hungary in an U16 international in February.
