Arsenal seemed to accidentally reveal Eddie Nketiah’s next destination on their club website.

Nketiah chooses from Aston Villa, Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest who all want to borrow Arsenal’s young striker for the rest of the season.
Nketiah, 20, returned to Arsenal after spending the first part of the campaign in Leeds.
He scored five times despite starting only four games with his 15 other appearances coming off the bench. As a result, the playing time offered will play an important role in his next club choice.
Arsenal received a hit on Saturday when captain and top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received a red card, which confronted him with a three-game ban, although an appeal was made against this.
Manager Mikel Arteta said that the impending suspension of Aubameyang would not affect the club’s decision to re-lend Nketiah.
He said: “It has not happened before and right now we have to think with Eddie in the medium to long term, we have to respect his evolution, his development and we don’t have to make decisions based on just two or three games I think. “
