ARSENAL star Bukayo Saka has paid for 120 children in Nigeria to undergo life-changing surgery.

The England winger, 21, teamed up with the charity BigShoe to help children in Kano, Nigeria’s second largest city, who were suffering from hernias and brain tumours.

Saka’s parents were both raised in Nigeria before moving to London, where the Gunners forward was born in 2001.

He said: “I feel blessed to be in a position where I can contribute to making the children’s lives easier and better through these surgeries.

“I still feel very connected to Nigeria.

“For me, it is very important to use my abilities to have a positive impact where I can and I have to say a big thank you to the whole BigShoe team for making this possible.

“For me it is important that every child has the same opportunity to achieve their dreams.
