Arsenal fans react as Eddie Nketiah set to stay at the Emirates Stadium

The Gunners forward has decided against going out on loan again.

Arsenal have decided that Eddie Nketiah will remain at the club for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.

BBC Sport have reported that the striker who was expected to return to the Championship on loan, will now be part of Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Nketiah was on loan at Leeds United during the first half of the season, scoring five times.

Game time was hard to come by in the Championship, however, with Arsenal unsatisfied.

Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City and Nottingham Forest were the three clubs who Arsenal selected for Nketiah to hold talks with.

After discussions with the trio and Arteta, however, the forward will now fight for a place at Arsenal.

The 20-year-old has 19 appearances for the Gunners and will now look to add to his tally during the second half of this season.

This decision couldn’t have come at a better time. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will start a three-match ban this weekend following his sending off against Crystal Palace.
