Arsenal have loaned young midfielder Jon Toral to Birmingham City for a year and look set to send defender Isaac Hayden out to the Championship.

Toral, 20, spent the 2014-15 season at Brentford on loan and scored six goals in 37 appearances. 

The former Barcelona youth product is highly rated by Arsene Wenger and was involved in this summer's tour to Singapore. A statement on the club website read: "Everyone would like to wish Jon well for his season with the Blues."

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey aims to be a future captain of the Gunners

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to add his first piece of silverware of the season ahead of the Community Shield against Chelsea.
