Top Gunner leaves Arsenal

WTTGT Writer: Simon Bourne (Site Editor)

talkSPORT have reported that young defender, Tom Cruise has left Arsenal. The 20 year old was expected to have a rich Arsenal future but things have not really worked out for the youngster.

Cruise is predominantly a left-back, and his release could signal that fellow full-back, Gael Clichy is set to stay at the club this summer after much speculation that he’d leave.

Having won the FA Youth Cup with Arsenal in 2008-09, Cruise went on to make his full debut in the Champions League against Greek side, Olympiakos. He also enjoyed a brief loan spell at Carlisle in November but has ultimately failed to make the grade at the Emirates, and has subsequently been invited to find a new club.

    what a crass headline —– a fringe reserve player is hardly a 'top gunner'

    Tom Cruise…… Top Gun…..? If you read the headline with that in mind then it makes sense;-) Sad to see him go. Wished that all the young guns would make the grade but alas. ..

    Seems like Arsene wants a new wing man. Saw a talented guy with a flat top called 'Goose' in the MLS.
