What happened with Semi Ajayi?

The talented Nigerian defender has been signed by Arsenal on what is described as a 'free transfer' from Charlton: Ajayi

The facts are a little complicated, according to Richard Cawley of the SLP. This is not a Jenkinson situation where we will benefit financially. He first went on trial at Norwich but then was scouted by Arsenal, but we won't even get a development fee for him because we only offered him a six month deal.

As for those fans who are now advocating bringing in Paolo di Canio as manager, words fail me. A passionate footballer does not necessarily make a good manager and criticising your own players publicly and privately does not raise morale. At Swindon, he was rightly regarded as a 'hand grenade'.
