Arsenal defender William Saliba chose Nice over St Etienne

Arsenal defender William Saliba chose Nice over a return to former club Saint Etienne.

Peuple-Vert says Saliba received equal offers from both OGN and ASSE.

And despite his ties to ASSE, Saliba chose Nice as he agreed to sign on-loan to the end of this season.

The 19 year-old agreed to join Nice for 'sporting reasons' and for 'something new'.

Saliba left ASSE for Arsenal last summer, though never tasted first team football with the Gunners this season.
