Arsenal striker Nketiah not giving up on Leeds loan

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah hopes his England Under-21 hat-trick caught the eye of Marcelo Bielsa as he seeks more games on loan at Leeds.

Nketiah has five goals in three European Championship qualifiers after Tuesday's treble against Austria.

He has yet to start a Championship game for Leeds so far this season and is itching to prove his worth.

"It's been disappointing for me not to start in the league - I went there to play games and get games," the 20-year-old said.

"It's still early days. I think every time I've come on a done well and shown why I should be playing.

"I feel like I probably haven't been given the chances I would have liked. I'm still one of the top scorers - if not the top scorer - in the team, with such limited time so I don't think I could do much more than that.

'I think the Austria game was a good statement and a good way for me to put across a performance and hopefully I'll be starting in the next run of games. I believe I'm good enough to be playing in the team."
