Arsenal have apparently signed a Brazilian teenager named Wellington according to

"Arsenal have reportedly completed the 3.5 million signing of Brazilian striker Wellington Silva.

The 16-year-old, who plays for Fluminense, will not join up with his Arsenal team-mates until his 18th birthday in January 2011 due to FIFA regulations. "

Yet another player who has been signed before he is 18. Would be nice if FIFA/UEFA could come up with a rule that no club could sign a player who is not within their geographic area if they are under 18.
