Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah has joined Championship side Leeds United on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old impressed during pre-season and will continue his development at Elland Road this campaign.

Nketiah joined Arsenal in 2015 and made his first-team debut in 2017 after shining in the youth ranks.

He scored his first Premier League goal on the final day of last season in a 3-1 win over Burnley.

In a statement, Arsenal said: "Everyone at Arsenal wishes Eddie all the best for his season with Leeds United and we look forward to seeing his continued development."
