DOESN’T BOAD WELL

Former Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City prodigy Denzeil Boadu is still without a club one year after leaving Crawley Town.

According to Record, nobody is yet to approach the free agent in the 12 months since his brief spell with the League Two outfit.

Boadu, 23, was tipped as the next big thing when with Tottenham youths.

The versatile forward, who played for England’s U16s and U17s, wound up at Arsenal in 2012 before joining Man City’s academy a year later.

Reflecting on the switch, Boadu said at the time: “My goal is to become a professional footballer.

“And being given that chance at Manchester City was like another chance to fulfil my dream.

“After leaving Arsenal I didn’t want to go lower, I wanted to be at the best club possible.

“And in England I think that is Manchester City.”

Boadu spent four years with the Citizens but failed to make a senior appearance for them, before playing 29 times for Borussia Dortmund’s B team in 2017.

But on returning to England he lasted less than half a season with Crawley.
