Eddie Nketiah looks set to join Leeds United on a season long loan despite being close to a move to Bristol City all week.

The Arsenal youngster, who seemed set to remain with the first team this season, will sign a season-long loan in the Championship.

It’s an exciting loan because it means we hopefully get to watch Nketiah play on a regular basis, something we wouldn’t get to do if he remained with Arsenal this season.

Still only 20, Eddie has the chance to show that he really is as ready as he claims by staking a case for the Arsenal first team through an exceptional season with Leeds.

A player who has scored goals with ease no matter what level he’s played at, this should be his biggest challenge to date.
