Arsenal to loan out Rob Holding

Holding could be loaned out in January

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly open to loan offers for young defender Rob Holding. The England Under-21 international joined the Gunners from Bolton Wanderers in the summer.

According to The Mirror, Wenger would entertain the prospect of letting Holding go in January with a number of Championship clubs vying for his services.

Holding, 21, has impressed with the limited chances in hand at the Emirates, but the manager feels a temporary move would benefit the player's progress.

Club-captain Per Mertesacker is set to be back into the mix at the turn of the year, and this is one reason as to why Holding could pursue a short-term stint away from North London.

Holding has managed to make seven starts for Arsenal following his debut which came in a 4-3 loss to Liverpool on the opening day of the season.
