Most of the talk at Arsenal on deadline day has seemingly been about the arrival of Kieran Tierney, but there has also been an outgoing worthy of discussion.

Arsenal confirmed on their official website that 20-year-old striker Eddie Nketiah has joined Championship side Leeds United for the season.
Nketiah has been rumoured with a loan move to a plethora of Championship sides this transfer window, with Bristol City the reported favourite according to Four Four Two before Leeds swooped in for the Arsenal prospect.
With one of the club’s most exciting youngsters heading out on loan for the year, many Arsenal fans were pleased to see Nketiah head out for the season to gain first-team experience with one of the top teams in the Championship, and supporters took to social media to show that.
Here is how some Arsenal fans reacted to the news…
It’s the best thing for his personal development. He was a victim of Welbeck’s injury, our indecision, and our lack of depth last season.

Nketiah becomes the second Arsenal player to be loaned out for the year following summer signing William Saliba, who returned to Saint-Etienne for the 2019/20 campaign (per Arsenal’s official website).
