Official: Akpom joins Belgian side on loan


Arsenal have confirmed that Chuba Akpom will spend the rest of the season on loan with Belgian side Sint-Truidense.

The striker, 22, has made two appearances for the Gunners this season but appears to have fallen behind Eddie Nketiah in Arsene Wenger’s attacking pecking order.

The move to Belgium represents his sixth loan deal in five years; he’s already spent time at Brentford, Coventry, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Brighton. He apparently turned down interest from the Championship to cross the Channel.

“I am very pleased that I can finish the season at STVV and I want to contribute to a strong end of the season”, Akpom told his new club’s official website. 

Best of luck to you Chuba.
