In a comical mishap on the Arsenal website, Nketiah’s player profile indicated that the striker had joined Bristol City on loan for all of five minutes, and it didn’t take long for the Bristol City supporters to latch onto the mistake and put it out in the open.
The mishap didn’t last for long, as the Gunners website quickly showed that Nketiah was on loan at Leeds before showing that the striker was, in fact, not on loan anywhere at the current time.
