Arsenal have sent 18 players out on loan this season – more than ever before – and some of them have impressed so far.
Daniel Ballard, for instance, was Blackpool’s man of the match twice, although he was sent off in their most recent game against AFC Wimbledon.
Jordi Osei-Tutu, who went into this season off the back of a successful spell at VfL Bochum, also started well at Cardiff City, but his progress has been halted by injury.
The right-back, who can also play further forward on that flank, is expected to be sidelined for between four to six weeks, which will come as a major blow given that he was starting to establish himself as an important player for the Championship side.
Tyreece John-Jules, meanwhile, has been back at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground for treatment on an injury.
The striker is on loan at Doncaster Rovers but hasn’t played for the League One side since October 6th.
John-Jules will hope to get back to full fitness soon as he aims to make the most of his latest loan spell. His stint with Lincoln last season was frustratingly ended by injury, so he will be especially eager to get as many minutes as possible this time around.
