Arsenal youngster Charlie Patino is set to join Blackpool on a season-long loan.The 18-year-old midfielder is tipped for a big future at Emirates Stadium and Arsenal believe a season in the Championship is the right move for his development.

Patino made his Arsenal debut last season when he came off the bench to score in a 5-1 win over Sunderland in the Carabao Cup in December.

He then made his first senior start in the FA Cup third-round defeat against Nottingham Forest.Patino was part of the Arsenal squad that travelled to Germany in pre-season, and featured as a substitute against Nurnberg, but he was not included in their tour of America.
