Ainsley Maitland-Niles joins the Blues on a season-long loan from the Premier League side ahead of the new campaign

  • Winger arrives from Arsenal on loan
  • Will spend 2015/16 season at Portman Road
  • Has Champions League experience

Town have completed the season-long loan signing of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who joins from Premier League side Arsenal.

Mick McCarthy has added the winger to his squad ahead of the new campaign, following Brett Pitman and Ryan Fraser through the door at Portman Road.

The teenager, who has featured for the Gunners in the Champions League and the Premier League, is highly thought of at the Emirates Stadium but will now switch his focus to the Blues for the upcoming term.

Maitland-Niles, who has represented England at youth level, can also play in central midfield but is more likely to be used as an out and out winger at Portman Road.

This is the youngster’s first move away from Arsenal and will be hoping to gain valuable experience from his loan spell with Town.
