Arsenal boss Arteta talks Nketiah future; Maitland-Niles decision

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta insists Eddie Nketiah will not leave this month.

In terms of outgoings this month, Arteta insisted Nketiah "is our player" and will stay.

He also spoke about sending Ainsley Maitland-Niles to Roma on loan.

"We talked about all the possibilities," he explained. "When you are finalising a deal there are certain things you cannot miss when finalising the deal. The interest of the player was that clear.

"You have to have the player in the right mindset to compete knowing he's going to leave the next day. I don't think you can make a decision for the next 12, 18 months for the next two days. I don't think it's logical."
