The end of the loan deadline for Football League clubs is approaching, and Arsenal forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is set to be offered up.

Both Sheffield United and Ipswich have been heavily linked with loan bids for the 19 year-old Englishman, who has been with the Gunners since the age of seven, and now Arsene Wenger is prepared to listen to offers.

“Maybe Jay Emmanuel-Thomas will go out because he needs to play,” the Arsenal manager said.

“There are plenty of clubs who are in for him and I will see this afternoon what we will do.”

Any club in for the player would get a fine prospect.

Emmanuel-Thomas is an imposing figure at 6’3″, and scored five goals in twelve starts when on loan at Championship side Doncaster Rovers last season.

He is also capable of the sensational.

Witness this goal for Arsenal Reserves from earlier this month for proof.

Clubs have until 5pm to seal the deal.
