The Professional Development League is the top youth football league in England, and the academy teams compete there. The Academy has several young players in the U-21 category and one of them is Reuell Walters.

Walters has been a benchwarmer for Arsenal’s first team on several occasions since March 2023. His first appearance came on March 9, away to Sporting CP in the Europa League last-16 first leg at Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon, Portugal. Here is more about the young player.

Who is Reuell Walters?

Reuell Joshua Walters is an English professional football player who was born on December 16, 2004, in Lambeth, London, England. The 19-year-old stands 1.83 m (6 ft 0 in) and plays defence for Arsenal in the Premier League.

The ex-Tottenham schoolboy, now 19, devised a map for the popular video game Fortnite during the coronavirus lockdown and it was so lucrative that the England Under-19 defender’s first tax bill was into six figure.

It’s also estimated his map was used 250million times in one week and as the Londoner gets a royalty fee every time it’s played, that meant his nightly earnings peaked at 10,000 to 15,000 dollars (£8k to £12k).

A look at Reuell Walters’ career

At seven years old, Walters had a stint with Peckham Town after playing for a “Brazilian football school” in London for a short while before it closed.

After playing for Unique FA for two seasons, Jamie Waller, the founder of Unique FA, suggested that he try out for Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Both clubs extended offers to Walters, who, at the age of ten, enrolled in the Tottenham Hotspur academy in March 2015, just before his family relocated to Potters Bar, a town north of central London.

He played his final match for Spurs in March 2019 after four years with the team; his contract expired in June of the same year. Walters picked Manchester United above rival team Manchester City in the process. However, the Premier League denied Walters’ registration because United had already met their quota and departing players were still registered at the time.

Walters signed with the Gunners as an under-16 on October 19, 2020, after the Premier League investigated to make sure he hadn’t been tapped up. In February 2022, he committed to the club on his first professional deal.

Talking about his international career, he is qualified to compete for Jamaica, Germany, or England. In the 2023 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualification, Walters made his debut for the England U19 team on March 22, 2023, in a 1-0 victory over Hungary at the Bescot Stadium.
