I’m not sure if this is actually worse than the alternative.

On the one hand, it means he can’t come back and bite us by scoring against us later in the season. One the other hand though, it just makes the whole thing feel like a waste of time.

According to John Percy of The Telegraph, it turns out that Eddie Nketiah will in fact not be heading back to the Championship for the second half of the season. Despite having held talks with Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City, it appears as though Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is willing to give him a shot.

Whether or not this decision was influenced by the red card to Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang meaning they’ll need some reinforcements for the next few weeks, it’s hard to say. So when the news came through, Leeds fans weren’t quite sure what to make of it, indeed a lot of them were of the opinion that the move didn’t make sense, and I have to agree with them.

Do you think Nketiah will get more minutes with Arsenal than with us?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Unless he’s going to be starting games on a regular basis, surely he’s just going to be getting treated the same as he was at Elland Road, with the odd cameo appearance here and there?
