Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles makes transfer decision

Ainsley Maitland-Niles now looks most likely to join West Brom on loan.

Southampton pulled the plug on a potential switch as Maitland-Niles had reservations about going to St Mary's as manager Ralph Hasenhuttl saw him as cover in the full back areas.

Maitland-Niles, 23, was also a target for Leicester but Arsenal did not want to deal with them as a rival and now it looks like he could go to the Hawthorns.

West Brom can offer games in midfield, they have made a big push to get him and also offer him game time which is key in his push for a place in Gareth Southgate's Euros squad.

Maitland-Niles still sees his long term future in midfield despite playing a key role at wing back and full back during Arsenal's run-in to win the FA Cup last season.
