Several Arsenal fans took to social media to send out their best wishes to the latest man to leave the Gunners on loan with just two weeks now remaining in the January transfer window.

Mikel Arteta has certainly improved the Gunners’ defence ever since he arrived in December as the man chosen to replace Unai Emery at the club, following the club’s concerning start to the season.

The Arsenal boss does not have too many players to choose from at centre-back though, with Calum Chambers succumbing to a knee injury which will keep him out of action for several months.

Despite all of that, Arteta and his coaching staff have decided now is the right time to send out Mavropanos on loan as the young defender’s move to Nurnberg was completed on Monday.

The 22-year-old, who has been earning £25,000-a-week wages at the Emirates stadium (Mirror), will be on loan with the German side for the remainder of the season as he looks to revive his career.
