Ainsley Maitland-Niles has said that he is committed to Arsenal despite the recent talk of him leaving the club. The 23-year-old celebrated his birthday with a man of the match performance against Liverpool in the Community Shield and speaking after the game, the versatile midfielder highlighted that his heart remains with the club.
He told: “It was a special moment. The first time I've ever played on my birthday and playing at Wembley, fighting for another cup and another title for the club. We brought it home today and it's just a fantastic feeling that this group of boys have proved something last season and kept going into this season. I'm an Arsenal player until I'm told otherwise. My heart is in this club and while I'm here I'm going to give 100% to the club, so that's that.”
