Significant Arsenal update emerges regarding Eddie Nketiah’s future at Leeds United

Published

on

Arsenal are not set to recall striker Eddie Nketiah from his loan spell at Leeds United this season, according to reports from The Sun.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals since joining the Whites on a season-long loan deal in the summer, but his future at Elland Road has been in doubt at times this season.

The young forward is yet to make a single league start for Leeds in the Championship, with Marcelo Bielsa opting to play Patrick Bamford ahead of the England under-21 international.

There have been reports claiming that Arsenal were set to recall Nketiah and bring him back to the Emirates Stadium, after being left reportedly unhappy at his lack of game-time under Bielsa.

It was a slow start to the season for Leeds - Who did they suffer a 3-1 defeat to on the opening day?

But reports from The Sun claim that Arsenal are happy to let him see out the season at Leeds, although they will look to add terms on bonuses and perks to make sure he gets the most out of his stay at Elland Road.

Bristol City have been linked with the striker’s signature after it was believed that the Gunners were set to recall the forward, however his future looks to be at Leeds for now, despite having a January recall clause in his contract.

The Verdict

This is a massive piece of news for Leeds United.

Whilst Nketiah may not be too much of an important first-team player right now, the impact he has made during his time at Elland Road has been excellent.

He provides energy and pace off the bench, and he is already proved that if a chance comes his way, he will take it.
