Arsenal loan Ainsley Maitland-Niles to Ipswich

Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles has joined English League Championship Ipswich on a season-long loan deal, the Gunners have announced.

The England Under-18 international, who made his senior debut for the club last season, will spend the 2015-16 campaign at Portman Road as Mick McCarthy's men target another promotion drive.

A club statement said: "Young midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles will spend the 2015-16 season on loan with Ipswich Town.

"The England Under-18 international enjoyed a promising year with Arsenal last term. Everyone at Arsenal wishes Ainsley well for the 2015/16 season as he looks to gain more senior experience.''

Maitland-Niles, 17, became the second youngest player to represent Arsenal in the Champions League when he was introduced as a substitute in the 4-1 victory at Galatasaray in December last year.

He also saw action from the bench against Newcastle in the Premier League and Hull in the FA Cup.
