Ainsley Maitland-Niles: Leicester join Southampton and West Brom in race to sign Arsenal defender on loan

Leicester have joined Southampton and West Brom in the race to sign Ainsley Maitland-Niles on loan from Arsenal on Deadline Day.

All three Premier League clubs have held talks with Arsenal in the hope a last-minute loan deal can be agreed before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to sign midfield cover following injuries to Dennis Praet and Wilfred Ndidi, and the club has held talks over a potential move for Maitland-Niles and Watford’s Nathaniel Chalobah.

West Brom manager Sam Allardyce maintains hopes of signing Maitland-Niles and the 23-year-old is keen on a move to the Hawthorns, where he is more likely to get more game time – potentially in his preferred position in midfield.
