The Gunners midfielder joined West Brom on a loan deal in January.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

was a key player for

Arsenal

in their successful FA Cup campaign last season and he was expected to find his place in the team’s squad. However, the 23-year-old struggled to get game time at the start of the current season and he finally joined

West Brom

on a loan deal. The versatile midfielder has established himself as an important player for the Baggies and has appeared in 16 Premier League matches for

Sam Allardyce

’s side. Ahead of his team’s Sunday match against

Newcastle

, Maitland-Niles has spoken about his loan move to West Brom.

“It’s another loan deal, you are going to end up going back to the club eventually,”

Maitland-Niles told 

talkSPORT

.

“It was just more of a chance for me to show what I’m capable of other than sitting on the bench for the rest of the season and rotting away.

“The main reason was being able to play as there’s nothing better than playing. I felt it would be great to experience the work of people trying to save their careers and stay in the Premier League.

“I think it was the perfect fit for me to be here and show them the qualities I can produce.”
