It’s recently been revealed by The Telegraph’s John Percy that Eddie Nketiah is set to stay with Arsenal for the remainder of this year’s campaign.

The 20-year-old had previously been with Leeds United, but had his loan spell cut short at Elland Road after a lack of consistent game time with Marcelo Bielsa’s side and been recently linked with a move to Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest.
In total, Nketiah made just to league starts in his time with the Whites, as he continued to be overlooked in favour of Patrick Bamford.
Leeds are currently sat second in the Championship table, and will be hoping that Marcelo Bielsa can make the necessary additions to their squad to make a long-awaited promotion back into the Premier League this term.
The Whites have recently been hit with a blow in their pursuit of Che Adams, with Southampton unwilling to consider a loan move for the striker, which means Leeds will have to turn their attention to other targets.
Plenty of the Elland Road faithful took to social media to issue their thoughts on Arsenal’s recent transfer decision on Nketiah.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Surely he would get more games from now to the end of the season with us?!?!

😂 you love to see it, think Aubameyangs ban might have something to do with it?

Well that's one that can't come back to haunt us this season. Fair play to the lad

Recalled from Leeds due to lack of game time, so he can sit on the bench at Arsenal.
Smooth brain tactics.

Least he can’t score against us now. Bielsa is a genius.
