Arsenal player, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has come out to say that he wants assurances over regular playing time at the club. Niles recently revealed that he is ready to leave the club if he doesn’t get the assurances he wants.
According to him, Arsenal has to tell him whether they’ve got plans to play him in the future, or if they want to sell him because that clarity is key for his career.
He added that he needs to know whether he should be finding a new club right now or carrying on with training at the Emirates stadium.
His words, “If I was to get a phone call from someone at Arsenal and they said they’d like a meeting tomorrow, then it would be easier that way.”
“They can tell me whether they’ve got plans to play me in the future or if they want to sell me. I’ve heard they want to make some space [in the squad] and some money so I’m not sure.”
“I want a decision. I want some clarity. And then hopefully I can get to work with whoever I need to get to work with.”
“Whether that is finding a new club or whether that is carrying on with my training. I would like some kind of indication of what is happening. Where they (Arsenal) see me.”
“If it works out it works out, if it doesn’t then kiss Arsenal goodbye. It’s been a long journey but a proud one at that.”
“Maybe they still want to do something and things could change. If not, there’s always other teams.”
