Ainsley Maitland-Niles tells Arsenal teammates he's leaving

Ainsley Maitland-Niles has told Arsenal teammates he's leaving.

The Daily Mail says Maitland-Niles looks set to choose between West Brom and Southampton as he closes in on a temporary loan switch away from Arsenal this month.

The 23-year-old, who said his goodbyes to team-mates at the London Colney training ground on Friday, is keen to secure more game-time after making just five Premier League starts for Mikel Arteta's side this season.

It is now understood that West Brom and Southampton are the sides Maitland-Niles is deciding between and the player's desire to secure a midfield role could prove decisive.

Maitland-Niles' versatility has seen him more often than not deployed as a full back or wing-back at Arsenal and so he is now keen to get an extended run in the middle of midfield.
