Nketiha scored five goals in 19 appearances while on loan with Leeds in the first half of the season.

It was expected that the 20-year-old would go back on another loan for the second part of 2019-20.

Championship clubs Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday all held talks over a short-term deal for Nketiah, but the striker will be staying put at the Emirates.

Arteta has been impressed with Nketiah’s attitude in training and wants to give him a chance.

Nketiah made nine total appearances last season, including three starts and scored against Burnley on the final day of the Premier League season.
