He was part of the FA Cup winning group two-weeks ago, but has not made an appearance for the Gunners senior side yet.

Arteta wants the academy product to get more action, with the League One side beating a host of clubs to his signature.

Smith impressed for the Arsenal Under-23s this season, and scored once in 12 Premier League 2 matches.

He will now join Gunners youth team-mates Zech Medley and Trae Coyle in League One, after they completed their loan moves to Gillingham.

On his move, Coyle, 19, said: “I’m delighted to be here; it’s a big step for me.

“I’m getting to the age where I need to play men’s football and I think this is a great place for me to have my first spell.

“I’m very excited, I can’t wait to get started. I’m a creative player who likes to make chances and get on the ball.”

On Medley, 20, completing his move, Gills boss Steve Evans said: “We are delighted that Zech has joined us.

“I would like to acknowledge the support of Mikel Arteta and his staff at Arsenal for agreeing that Zech should continue his education here.

“He is actually a Medway boy, he went to school in Gillingham and his family still live here, in many ways he is one of our own.”
