Arsenal boss Arteta happy with Maitland-Niles attitude

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he's happy with the attitude of Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Maitland-Niles publicly revealed his intention to quit Arsenal in an angry Instagram post in late August.

He was forced to train with the reserve team for a short period before fixing his issues with Arteta and the Arsenal hierarchy before the transfer deadline, amid interest from Everton.

Arteta confirmed that Maitland-Niles is one of the midfield options he has for the clash with Brighton after being impressed with the 24-year-old during recent Premier League cameos.

"He's certainly one of the options," Arteta said when talking about the England international. "We have used him quite a lot at the start of the season, I'm really impressed."
