Arsenal great Adams fears Saka will leave over 'feeder club mentality'

Arsenal great Tony Adams has admitted concerns for whizkid Bukayo Saka.

In an effort to increase their attacking options Arsenal bought in Martin Odegaard on loan in January.

Adams has been critical of the move though and doesn't believe it paints the club in a positive light.

He told Astro Super Sport: "You've got to see if they work. The Premier League is a bit special in respect of Odegaard has come in to this league and some people respond to it and can do it, and some people can't.

"So if you get them in on loan and say, 'Let's have a little look whether he can do it or not, can he play in this league or not', and I think the jury's still out.

"I honestly think he's a super player, don't get me wrong, very talented, but is the Premier League for him? Not too sure about that.

"And it's going to have to take some time to have a look at that. What I don't like is that it's like being a feeder club.

"If we're not careful, before you know it [Bukayo] Saka is going to be moving on."
