According to reports from a UK newspaper, Arsenal U-21 team midfielder Dan Crowley is set for another season long loan as a result of his quest to gain more game time for first-team experience.

Crowley was born in Coventry and came through the ranks at Aston Villa before joining Arsenal in 2013 and is yet to feature for the North London club’s first team after playing regularly for the U-21 .
Last season the midfielder had a three-month loan spell at Barnsley in League One playing 13 games in total.
The midfielder disclosed the following to Coventry Telegraph, “I have spoken to the boss and he says I’m not physically ready for the Premier League yet.”
“That’s fair enough and I completely agree because it’s a tough league on your body and there’s so much running that people don’t realise”.
The midfielder however disclosed he was only going to join a team that plays an open attacking football.
He said , “It’s going to have to be the right club from a football perspective . I want a team that play the right football because the way I play I can’t just go to any team.”
“I want it to suit my position. I like the ball at my feet and just passing and attacking footballing teams,” he concluded.
