Ex-Arsenal, Tottenham and Man City starlet Denzeil Boadu still without club a year after Crawley Town exit
FORMER Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City prodigy Denzeil Boadu is still without a club one year after leaving Crawley Town.
According to Record, nobody is yet to approach the free agent in the 12 months since his brief spell with the League Two outfit.
Boadu, 23, was once tipped as the next big thing after kicking off his youth career at Tottenham.
The versatile forward, who played for England’s U16s and U17s, wound up at Arsenal in 2012 before joining Man City’s academy a year later.
Reflecting on the switch, Boadu said at the time: “My goal is to become a professional footballer.
“And being given that chance at Manchester City was like another chance to fulfil my dream.
“After leaving Arsenal I didn’t want to go lower, I wanted to be at the best club possible.
“And in England I think that is Manchester City.”
Boadu spent four years with the Citizens but failed to make a senior appearance for them.
He then secured a move to Borussia Dortmund in 2017, making 29 appearances for their B team.

However, Boadu was let go in 2019 after failing to score once.
And he was picked up soon after by Crawley Town on a two-year contract.
Then-boss Gabriele Cioffi said at the time: “I think Denzeil is going to be a very good fit for the club and the way I want us to move forward with a young, hungry squad.
“He is fit and has worked hard this summer and I am sure our fans will enjoy watching him play.”
However, Boadu lasted less than half a season and was released in January 2020 after just four games.
A statement read: “Denzeil has left after seeking his release from the club. Reluctantly we had to accept as Denzeil has been adamant to leave.
“We believe Denzeil had a lot to offer and were very reluctant to release him. However, his desire for first-team football has led to the club accepting his request.”
