Player Profile

Ainsley Maitland-Niles
Goodmayes - August 29, 1997

Having been at the club since the age of nine, technically-gifted midfielder Ainsley spent last season on loan at Ipswich Town in the Championship, where he gained valuable first-team experience.

The Hale End graduate was on target twice for the Tractor Boys, as Mick McCarthy’s side narrowly missed out on a play-off place. At just 17 years and 102 days, Ainsley became Arsenal’s second-youngest Champions League player (behind Jack Wilshere) following his substitute appearance against Galatasaray in December 2014, and made his Premier League debut against Newcastle United four days later.

Comfortable in central midfield or on the wing, Ainsley has represented England at under-17 and under-18 age groups.
