Chuba Akpom has joined Greek side PAOK Salonika on a three-year deal, bringing to an end a 16-year association with Arsenal.

The 22-year-old joined the Arsenal academy aged six but he failed to establish himself as a first-team regular and has gone on a number of loan spells in recent years.

Akpom, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Sint-Truiden in Belgium, made 12 appearances for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger but was left out of Unai Emery's squad for their pre-season tour in Singapore.
