?Eddie Nketiah will not go out on loan this month and instead will remain at Arsenal for the rest of the season, despite strong interest in the striker from across the Championship.

On the final day of last season Nketiah grabbed his first and only Premier League goal to date, scoring against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Nketiah held talks with Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest, but following discussions with Mikel Arteta, he looks set to remain at the Emirates Stadium.

An FA Cup tie against Bournemouth is the final match of his ban, another clash in which Nketiah may get a run out, with plenty of fixtures before the end of the season for him to make an impression on Arteta.

That means Nketiah may get some first-team minutes during the weekend's top-flight encounter against Sheffield United, before a crucial trip across London to take on rivals Chelsea.

The 20-year-old spent the first half of the season with Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United, and while he scored three goals for the club across 17 appearances, the majority of those came off the bench.

Aubameyang's absence will leave a gaping hole in Arteta's attack, with the Gabon forward netting 14 of the club's 29 goals in the league this season.
