Arsenal release 10 players after missing out on the Premier League title.


Arsenal will release 10 players at the end of the month when their contracts expire, including one who made 132 appearances for the first team.

The Gunners released a statement on Friday morning to confirm which players will be leaving the club when their deals officially end.

Among those is Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who has spent the last four seasons on loan at different clubs.

The 25-year-old, a product of Arsenal’s academy, has had spells with Ipswich, Roma, West Brom and most recently Southampton.

Maitland-Niles made his debut for the north London club at the age of 17 in 2014 and would go on to become an established squad player between 2017 and 2022.

The former England international will be joined on his way out of the exit door by Zach Awe, Joel Ideho, George Lewis, Matt Smith and Tom Smith.

Four scholars, Kaleel Green, Alexandar Kovacevic, Tino Quamina, Mathaeus Roberts, will also be departing.

Arsenal ended the announcement with this message to the players, writing: ‘thank all the above players for their contributions to the club during their time with us.

‘You will always be part of the Arsenal Family and we wish you all the best of health, happiness and success in your futures.’

Meanwhile, the club gave fans an update on the situation with Reiss Nelson, saying that ‘negotiations are ongoing’.

Nelson’s contract also ends on June 30, 2023 but there is increasing optimism that he will stay at the club.
