Arsenal defender William Saliba has admitted some frustration over the lack of chances he had in London.

After a first six months with Arsenal, former Saint Etienne prospect Saliba has returned to France with Nice. He joined OGCN on-loan to season’s end.

Saliba told the Telegraph: “The coach immediately said that I was not ready.

“In any case, I would have liked to have had the chance to rediscover my rhythm. But such is football…”

Saliba made his Nice debut in midweek for their 2-0 defeat to Brest.
