Arsenal Football Club has officially released Ainsley Maitland-Niles, a fan favourite who has been with the club since he was six years old. The 25-year-old midfielder made 132 appearances for Arsenal during his time at the club, but now he will have to find a new team to continue his career.

Maitland-Niles has sent a heartfelt message to Arsenal fans, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity to play for the club he supported as a child. He spoke about the emotional journey he has been on and how happy he was to have achieved so much during his time at Arsenal.

“Words can’t describe how I’m feeling to be honest, it’s been a very emotional journey. Having supported the club growing up and coming through the ranks, I can only be happy with what I’ve achieved since I’ve been here.” Ainsley Maitland-Niles told  Arsenal Media.

“I’ve seen a lot of players come and go and played with a lot of fantastic players throughout my time here. Unfortunately, it has to come to an end, but I’ve been happy every single moment I’ve been here to play and work for this club.”

The midfielder also talked about some of his best moments at the club, including winning trophies like the FA Cup. He said that these were memories that would always stick in his mind and that he was proud to have been part of the team that won them.

Despite leaving Arsenal, Maitland-Niles promised to continue supporting the team and its players. He urged fans to stay true to the team and expressed his confidence in their ability to win something in the future.

Maitland-Niles’ departure from Arsenal comes as no surprise, as he had fallen out of favour with manager Mikel Arteta in recent months. The midfielder spent last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, where he played regularly and impressed with his performances.

It is unclear where Maitland-Niles will go next, but there are sure to be plenty of suitors for a player of his talent and experience. He will be missed by Arsenal fans, who have grown attached to him over the years.

In conclusion, Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ departure from Arsenal marks the end of an era for both player and club. While it is sad to see him go, fans can take comfort in knowing that he will always be a Gunner at heart. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours and look forward to seeing where his career takes him next.
