A Late U-Turn Has Been Made On The Future Of Rob Holding

A Late U-Turn Has Been Made On The Future Of Rob Holding

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has had a change of mind about allowing Rob Holding to leave the Emirates on loan this season.

Newcastle wanted to borrow Holding ahead of the upcoming campaign.

The two clubs held talks with Arsenal manager Arteta initially prepared to let Holding leave after adding William Saliba, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Magalhaes to his squad.

Midfielder Thomas Delaney knows Dortmund team-mate Jadon Sancho will be a threat to Denmark on Tuesday.

Their arrivals at the Emirates took Arteta’s pool of natural centre backs to eight plus Kieran Tierney who can also be deployed at the heart of the defence.

However, Holding has taken his chance to impress Arteta who is now weighing up keeping the 24 year-old as part of his squad for the season.

He also contributed to another Wembley win when he lined up alongside Luiz and Tierney as Arsenal beat Liverpool on penalties to win the Community Shield last month.
