Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Moises Caicedo TWIST, Gunners REJECT Lokonga loan offer, Declan Rice’s PROMISE

    Surely Az not big enough!

    Arsenal star Miguel Azeez will be hoping he doesn’t get a kick in the leg – after revealing his miniature shin pads.

    The 20-year-old midfielder joined Kolo Toure’s Wigan on loan this month until the end of the season.

    But he must be careful as he comes up against Championship opponents – because his shin pads barely protect him. So much so, the teeny pads fit in the palm of his hand.

    Azeez – who was charged with improper conduct for picking up a flare to celebrate on his Wigan debut – took to his Instagram story to show fans asking what he wears in his socks.

    And the result are a pair of tiny pair of black shin pads with the Joga branding in white down the middle.

    On the brand’s website, the “smallest pads on the market” – which are 8cmx5cm – cost £14.99 and are “designed primarily for comfort and protection”.

    Azeez captioned the post: “For those wondering if I wear shin pads,” followed by a laughing emoji.

    The photo from the Arsenal star, who joined the academy aged five, caused some hilarious reactions on social media.

    One person wrote: “The size of Miguel Azeez’s shin pads 😳 I remember the days when it covered most of your shin!”

    Another commented: “This is giving me Thierry Henry shin pad circa 2004 vibes.” A third replied: “Like wearing a sticker on your head instead of a helmet.”
