William Saliba on St Etienne loan return: I'm not ready for Arsenal

Arsenal signing William Saliba insists his loan return to St Etienne is the right move.

At 18, Saliba says he doesn't feel ready to be a first team regular at Arsenal.

He explained, "How important is it to be loaned to ASSE? It was important, most of all because I wanted to prove myself for another year with ASSE before going to Arsenal.

"It's a very big club and when you come here, you have to be ready."

Saliba signed for the Gunners this week.
