Arsenal make loan decision on Eddie Nketiah

Eddie Nketiah news

Nketiah won't be recalled by Arsenal next month

Arsenal have no plans of recalling Eddie Nketiah from his loan spell at Leeds United despite the striker's limited playing time in the Championship.

The young forward made the move to Elland Road on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window but he has since struggled for gametime in the league and managed 12 appearances off the bench.

As a result, it has been recently claimed that the 20-year-old could be recalled by the Gunners at the turn of the year but The Sun suggests that won't be the case.

It is added that the Gunners graduate will see out the campaign with the high-flying Championship outfit, who are already eight points ahead of Fulham in the race for the second automatic promotion spot.

Nketiah has managed to contribute five goals for Leeds this term. He has managed just 289 minutes of first-team action in the league, scoring two goals in the process.

Arsenal's stance on Nketiah could prove a blow for Bristol City, who have recently been tipped to sign the youngster to enhance their Premier League promotion prospects.
