BREAKING: Arsenal Unable To Agree William Saliba Loan Extension At Saint-Etienne

BREAKING: Arsenal Unable To Agree William Saliba Loan Extension At Saint-Etienne


Saliba, 19, joined Arsenal for a fee in the region of £27m last summer and was immediately loaned back to the Ligue 1 club, with the deal set to expire at the end of June.

Ligue 1 was cancelled in April because of the coronavirus pandemic but the Coupe de France final between Saint-Etienne and Paris Saint-Germain will go ahead on July 24, and it was hoped a deal could be agreed to extend Saliba’s loan until after the match.

Mikel Arteta had previously said Saliba had “earned the right” to play in the final but Arsenal have since confirmed the defender will return to the Emirates after the Gunners failed to agree a short-term loan extension.

“Throughout our discussions with Saint-Etienne, our aim has been to protect the welfare of William Saliba as well as the interests of Arsenal Football Club, while honouring the terms of the loan,” read a club statement.

“Despite the loan ending on June 30, we were willing to find a way for William to play in the [French] cup final on July 24, despite having no contractual obligation to do so.

“As William is returning from injury, we asked that Saint-Etienne follow a clear training plan with William in close collaboration with us, to ensure he is fully fit for the start of next season.

“To our surprise, we were unable to reach agreement to this plan which was proposed by our medical experts, and we are simply not prepared to risk the welfare of an Arsenal player.

“While it was not our primary concern, and ultimately not relevant as our training plan was not accepted, we also expected not to be financially disadvantaged by extending the loan. This was also not acceptable to Saint-Etienne.

“We know this is a disappointment for William but he understands we are working to protect his long-term interests and those of Arsenal.”
