Arsenal were keen to extend his stay with the defender attracting plenty of interest having entered the last 12 months of his previous deal.

It has been said that the Gunners are likely to officially announce the extension later this week.

They have also declared that the youngster could once again depart the club on a temporary switch.

A move to a Championship side has been mooted for Norton-Cuffy, who joined Arsenal from Chelsea when he was 12.

His former Lincoln boss Michael Appleton, now in charge at Blackpool, has tipped Norton-Cuffy to have a huge future at Arsenal.

He told Lincolnshire Live in March: “I don’t want Arsenal ringing me up saying ‘what have you said that for?’

“But I’ve been saying it behind the scenes, I think he will play for Arsenal’s first team on a regular basis.

“It might not be for a couple of years but it’s definitely going to happen.

“He’ll hopefully continue his progression over the next few games.

“There’s one or two things that I think I can help him with, but by the time he goes back to Arsenal, he’ll be much better.”
