Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been banished from first team training at Arsenal.
The Daily Mail says Everton tabled a bid for the England international, but he was told by the Gunners in a hastily-arranged meeting that he was not allowed to depart the Emirates this summer.
Earlier on Monday, Maitland-Niles had taken to Instagram to complain about the failed move, posting: “All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play”.
The Mirror reports Maitland-Niles has now been told by Arsenal he will be training away from the first team following his outburst – as the Tuesday evening’s transfer deadline of 11pm draws ever nearer.
Having previously stated his preference to play in a central midfield role, Maitland-Niles informed Arteta at the start of the season that he wanted to focus on playing at full-back – a role he was occupying when he broke into the England squad last year.
