Former Arsenal academy player Tyrell Robinson has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for having sex with a 14-year-old girl in 2018.
The ex-Gunners talent, who joined the academy at the age of seven but was released in 2017, played for Bradford City at the time of the offence.
He was almost 20 when three 14-year-old girls joined him and his friend Korie Berman at his flat in August 2018.
Robinson, now 23, was sentenced to three-and-a-half years after "admitting sexual activity with a child, making an indecent image of a child and distributing an indecent image of a child", according to the Daily Mirror.

Prosecutors stated that Robinson had met the underaged victims at a social event he had been told not to attend by Bradford City, who sacked him after his actions became public.
The player knew the girls' ages but still had sex with one of them after he and his friend took the three girls, who had already drunk vodka, to Robinson's flat and gave them more alcohol.
The footballer then had intercourse with his victim, stopping when one of the other girls came in to inform her her mother was on the phone.
Robinson's lawyer said "he has let his family down and everyone who believed in him, from the Arsenal academy to Bradford Football Club", before adding that his football background, including being away from home at an academy from a young age, led his "maturity to not be what it should be".
He has since become a father and his partner is standing by him, per the Daily Mirror.
His friend Berman, then 19 and now 22, was jailed for six years after admitting to five counts of sexual activity with a child.
The judge said that both Robinson and Berman's offences had caused all three girls and their families considerable harm.
Both men will be on the sex offenders’ register for life.
