Arsenal have confirmed the addition of five new signings to their scholarship scheme for the 2015-16 season.

Yassin Fortune and Jeff Reine-Adelaide have joined from RC Lens, with the former having previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, according to the Daily Mail.

Vlad Dragomir arrives from Romanian side ACS Poli Timisoara while Jordi Osei-Tutu moved from Reading.

Osei-Tutu spent eight years learning his trade at the Madejski Stadium but will move to Arsenal's academy to continue his footballing education.

Kostas Pileas completes the quintet, after the Cyprus youth international spent a spell on trial with the North London club last term.

Of the 14 players to earn promotion, eight of them have come through the club's Hale End Academy, which brought through the likes of Jack Wilshere and Ashley Cole, who both went on to win caps with England.

In March, the club unveiled plans to upgrade their youth facilities, which will include a new gym, a 40m running track, ice baths, a cryotherapy chamber, scouting suites and meeting rooms.

The improvements are set to be installed in time for the start of the 2017-18 season and will be used by both the first team and first and second year professionals, as Arsenal attempt to keep up with their domestic and European rivals.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "These are significant investments to ensure we provide our players with the best possible facilities at every age group within the club.

"These developments, together with the recruitment of specialists in player preparation, injury prevention and recovery, analytics, coaching and scouting, will ensure we stay at the forefront of the latest thinking within the game and are an important part of our ambition to keep improving and developing on and off the pitch."
