UD Ibiza have confirmed that Miguel Azeez has returned to Arsenal, ending a loan spell that began in September.
The 20-year-old made 11 appearances for the club in total but only featured in two of the last seven matches dating back to the end of October.
Azeez was due to spend the entire season on loan on the Balearic island but with Ibiza languishing at the bottom of the table the decision has been taken to end the arrangement prematurely.
Miguel Azeez is no longer a UD Ibiza player. @Arsenal and UD Ibiza have reached an agreement to finish the loan that joined him to our club.
From UD Ibiza we wish him all the best for his professional career. Thank you, @MiguelAzeez! #VamosIbiza 💙 #ThankYouMiguel pic.twitter.com/iC62LqMvM6

It’s not the first time this has happened to the midfielder. Last season he was sent to Portsmouth to gain further experience of senior football but returned to London Colney in January and saw out the season with Arsenal’s under-23s.
It remains to be seen whether we rehouse Azeez this time around. It probably makes sense to do so because opportunities at the Emirates are going to be few and far between.
Arsenal have 15 more academy players out on loan at the moment and a further seven who are classified as first team squad members. It’s hard to categorise Auston Trusty, the 24-year-old American signed last January, but he’s spending the year at Birmingham.
No more Eez in Ibiza?
That’ll curb tourism.
Az Azeez az eez Eez?
Sorted for Azeez & Wizz.
He’s a real crowd pleezer
Azeez is good, Azeez is good, Miguel Azeez is good.
I wonder how long he spent pretending he’d lost his phone when he got wind he’d be back in London for January!
Trusty looks to be a player we’re developing for sale, even if he is a big guy and left footed
Azeez is good
Azeez is good
Azeez is good
Miguel Azeez is good
For that chant alone I hope he makes it at Arsenal!
Bonus points if you can think up a chant to the tune of Move Any Mountain
We’ve got Myk-Myk-Mykhailo Mudryk!
I’d be inclined to say too late. We should have opened with £60m and now should be offering £80m tops (including add ons, etc).
As usual, we waste everyone’s time making daft offers that we know are going to get turned down; we never ever learn.
He’ll either go to Chelsea or stay at Shakhtar.
Thought we tied up deals for White, Odegaard, Vieira, Zinchenko and Jesus without messing about?!
No we haven’t.
I would be very surprised if we coughed up the extra 20 million.
The fact that we’ve already spent 400 million in the past two years, seems to be neither here nor there.
I just Edu and Co know what they are doing, because at the moment, in terms of title chasing attacking options from the bench, we have Vieira. And…erm….that’s it. 🙄
Naughty naughty very naughty.
You’ve just reminded me of how shit 90’s music was.
That said, it was infinitely better than the crap being peddled nowadays.
It’s a pity. He needs a proper club to play first-team football. I hope he will get his chance soon.
