Birmingham City's 17-year-old winger Koby Arthur pens a two-year professional contract with the club.

Koby Arthur has signed his first professional contract with Championship outfit Birmingham City.

The 17-year-old, who has been promoted to the senior team in recent weeks, has committed his future to the Blues until the summer of 2015.

"I have been hugely impressed with Koby and he has now become involved with the first team group on a daily basis," manager Lee Clark told the Birmingham Mail.

"He has a big future ahead of him and he fits the bills in terms of my philosophy of building a young, hungry and talented squad here at Birmingham City."

Arthur had previously been linked with a host of Premier League clubs.
