Nice (France) (AFP) -Arsenal defender William Saliba has moved to Nice on a loan until the end of the season, the clubs announced on Monday.
In a statement, League 1 outfit Nice said the deal with 19-year-old Arsenal had no purchase options, but sources close to the deal told AFP that the loan could be extended to next season. ..
Arsenal said the move was aimed at giving Saliba a “more competitive playing time opportunity.”
Edu, Arsenal’s technical director, said:
Saliba has not yet appeared on the Gunners’ first team since joining from Saint-Etienne in June.
The Premier League outfit was repaid to Saint-Etienne for the season after paying € 30 million ($ 36.8 million) to the French national team under the age of 20 in July 2019.
Saliba was able to come as a cover for Captain Dante, who was injured for a trip to Brest on Wednesday. This is Nice’s first match since winter vacation.
