Arsenal defender Kyle Bartley is pleased with Steve Bould's promotion as new assistant manager.

Bartley, a young defender who has been given an Arsenal squad number this season after loan spells at Sheffield United and Rangers, is excited by the change.

"As a central defender, it’s absolutely fantastic to have someone like Steve Bould around," said Bartley. "Already, in training, you can see the influence he’s going to have.

"He’s going to have a massive input into the defensive unit. He could be as big a signing as any player could be, having Steve in the first team squad."
