OFFICIAL: Arsenal recall Ghanaian teen Eddie Nketiah from Leeds United

Eddie Nketiah will be return to Arsenal after being recalled from his loan spell at Elland Road, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed.

Nketiah was substituted at half-time of Leeds' 1-1 draw at West Brom on New Year's Day and waved goodbye to the visiting fans at the end of the game.
 
After the match the Argentine confirmed Nketiah's season-long stay was being ended four months early.
 
"The club and him informed us that he is not going to continue with us," said Bielsa. "We are sorry for that."
 
We know what we offered to him maybe was not what the club (Arsenal) expected," Bielsa told BBC Radio Leeds.
 
"He is a great player and excellent professional. He has been developed with a good education and for this reason it is a pity for us that he leaves us. We were happy with him."
 
The 20-year-old scored four goals in his first six matches for Leeds in all competitions but often had to settle for a place on the bench, starting in just two of his 19 appearances for United.
 
Nketiah posted on Twitter to say that his time at Leeds was "an enjoyable one".
 
"It's been an amazing experience and a privilege to play for such an amazing club," he said in the social media post.
 
He will now return to the Emirates where new Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will take a look at him as he attempts find the formula to help them climb the Premier League table.
