Arsenal loanee Nketiah: Leeds experience already helping development

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah says his learning a lot from his loan spell at Leeds United.

The 21-year-old has struggled for consistent minutes at Elland Road.

But that hasn't stopped him soaking in the new experience of being out on loan for the first time.

He told reporters: "The experience, going on loan, there's a lot of things more than just on the pitch and I think I've learned a lot as a person and developed a lot," he added. "It's still early stages and I'm really looking forward to the future.

"It's a great club with great fans and I'm sure once I get the opportunity to show why I could be playing week in, week out, kick on and enjoy it even more.

"It's very different. The area is one thing and the training methods are a lot different but in your career you're always gonna have to come out of your comfort zone, and I think it's good for me to get that so early.

"I've met a lot of nice people at the club, played with some good players. I feel like it has been a good experience for me and I'm really looking to just kick on and get more minutes and show what I can really do."
