Transfer deadline: Arsenal confirm striker has joined another English club

Arsenal has announced that Eddie Nketiah has joined Leeds United on loan on transfer deadline day.

“All the best for this season at @LUFC, @EddieNketiah9,” the club wrote on their official Twitter handle.
 The English Championship side beat off competition from Bristol City and Fortuna Dusseldorf to land the 20-year-old.

“I feel like I have been improving until being at a stage now when I am ready to play regularly.

“I am trying to show in pre-season that I have developed and I am ready to show what I can do.
 “There was the talk of [a loan move in January] and it was close to happening but the club decided that I should stay and I tried to finish the season as strongly as possible.

“After the tour, it’s something that I will look at with my family and speak to the manager and see what is best for me,” Nketiah told reporters towards the end of July.

It is understood that Leeds manager, Marcelo Bielsa, was keen on Nketiah as a replacement for Kemar Roofe, who has joined Anderlecht.

Bielsa is set to hand Nketiah a key role in his attack this season.
