Arsenal defender Saliba named Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year

Arsenal defender William Saliba has been crowned as UNFP Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year.

Saliba has now come to the end of his loan move and is set to return to North London with his future up in the air.

Arsenal signed Saliba two years ago from St Etienne.
