Boothroyd: Leeds good place for Arsenal striker Nketiah

England Under-21s manager Aidy Boothroyd is happy with the form of Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.

The 20-year-old is yet to start for Leeds in the Championship, even though he has scored 10 goals in 13 games for club and country this season, but Boothroyd thinks he is doing just fine.

"He gets his minutes with us and I'm sure he'll do well at his club team," he said.

"He is in a brilliant place, learning off a great coach and I know because he has said he is enjoying being there at such a big club and when he comes to us he is ready and fresh hopefully we can send him back as a better player."

Nketiah hit a hat-trick in England's European Championship qualifying win over Austria.
