Boss says he would be interested in extending loan deal for Arsenal man
Steve Davis has revealed that he would be keen to extend Chuks Aneke’s loan agreement with the club. The on-loan Arsenal starlet has one game to serve of his three-match suspension after being sent-off for a reckless tackle on Stevenage’s Anthony Grant. Aneke has missed the last two games and was hugely disappointed as he had come out on loan to play minutes.
Aneke has been working hard on his fitness levels and although Davis has not seen too much of him in terms of playing time, he is eager to see if Arsenal would allow the 19-year-old to remain on loan at Alexandra Stadium after his current deal expires after the home game against Oldham.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Chuks has worked very hard. He has to get used to working hard here and he is getting fitter all the time. I would imagine he doesn’t do too much running without the ball at Arsenal but he has to do that here.
“I am sure he feels comfortable here and is enjoying his stay here and he wants to extend it. I will speak to chairman and see if we can keep it going for another month. We can have him as long as they will allow it and as long as we want him to stay.
“We want him to stay. We need to speak to Steve Bould and those at Arsenal to see if they are happy. If they are then we will do it. What we saw at Stevenage was enough to suggest he is a good addition.”
