Arsenal accept Hoyte bid

Arsenal accept Hoyte bid

Arsenal have accepted a bid from Middlesborough for the services of England U21 full back Justin Hoyte.

He is due to have talks with the club shortly. Boro Chief Executive Keith Lamb says on the clubs web site 'We have agreed a fee with Arsenal and we have now been given permission to speak to Justin, which we will be doing in the next 24-48 hours.'

Hoyte has often pleaded his desire to stay with the club but with the club signalling their willingness to let him go it will be difficult for him to do so if he is offered decent personal terms.

He's been a good professional for us. Maybe not the best player we've ever had but his attitude has been exceptional and he deserves to be playing regular football somewhere.

Shame, I like Justin - he always gives the impression of a guy that desperately wants to improve for us, he is an Arsenal lad after all. I wouldn't begrudge him the move though, he must be thinking seriously about his career considering he is 24 now.

same thoughts here, we need Gooners like him in the squad. I'd be very very sad to see him go.

I'd like us to keep him, a bit sad to see him go. An Arsenal lad and good young pro in the team. But if Arsene thinks it's a good decision, fair enough. Maybe he's counting on Eboue to back up Sagna (I hope so).

great pro and of course a gooner but, much as I like him, it would be a waste of a career to spend your whole time as back-up, even a loan move would not feel like first team football. fair to let him go I think. I'll be sad to see him go but happy to see him playing reguarly in the premiership (and he'll still be wearing red and white)

I feel badly for Justin, he really loves the club, he's a true Gunner, I hope he's ok with this. Boro's not a bad club to go to, Southgate's a decent manager who likes attacking football. And Boro have an annoying habit of beating the top teams, Justin could even get one over us. It'll be good for his career. But I have very mixed feelings since we can't afford to lose anyone else. If this means Eboue will be Sagna's back-up, then ok. Best of luck to Justin, I just hope he doesn't wind up being quoted in the tabloids trashing Arsenal.

It's a shame for him. And whilst I agree he's not the best, why is every story I read about Arsenal players is people LEAVING?!?!

I like him, but then I like my mates too and none of them are good enough to play for Arsenal (or anyone else for that matter) The boy is ordinary and if he played for anyone else I would probably say he was rubbish. Harsh words perhaps, but bottom line is he isn't good enough. I feel another debate about 'not enough English players' coming on.
