Kelechi Nwakali joins MVV Maastricht on loan


Last week reports emerged that Arsenal were set to cut short the loan of Kelechi Nwakali to VVV Venlo.

The 19 year old has had a difficult time with the Eredivisie outfit, starting just three games despite scoring on his first appearance for the club back in September.

Rather than being called to London, however, he’ll spend the second half of the season with MVV Maastricht in the Dutch second division.

Nwakali spent last season on loan with them, making 34 appearances, scoring three goals and making 4 assists.

The Nigerian joined the Gunners in the summer of 2016, and his loan moves are developmental.

Unfortunately it seems he’s been unable to convince mid-table VVV Venlo that he’s ready for their first team, so let’s hope it goes well with Maastricht who are in a similar league position in the Eerste Divisie.
