Arsenal star Maitland-Niles in serious auto-crash on motorway

Arsenal and England star Ainsley Maitland-Niles walked away uninjured from a motorway crash that reportedly left a car on its side.

The highly-rated 23-year-old, who has five England caps, was involved in a crash on the M25 on Wednesday morning.

It is understood a Mercedes G-Class car ended up on its side after a collision with another car at around 6am.

The crash involving the Premier League star is believed to have happened between Junctions 24 and 25 close to Enfield, North London.

An Arsenal spokesman told The Mirror: “All we know having spoken to him is he was involved in an accident, he’s unhurt and he’s at home.”

He said: “Police were called at approximately 06:10hrs on Wednesday, 30 June to reports of two cars in collision on the M25 anticlockwise carriageway at junction 25.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended.

“No reports of any injuries.

“Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.”

Maitland-Niles, 23, came through the youth ranks at Arsenal and made his debut for the club in December 2014 against Galatasaray in the Champions League.

He has played 21 times for the Gunners in all competitions, as well as featuring for both Ipswich and West Brom in loan spells.

The right-back represented England at various youth levels before making his senior debut in September last year as a substitute against Denmark.

He has five caps for the Three Lions, but missed out on Gareth Southgate’s squad for Euro 2020.

Maitland-Niles claimed earlier this month he was ready to “kiss Arsenal goodbye” having joined the club as a six-year-old.

Having spent the second half of the campaign on loan at West Brom, he told The Telegraph: “If I was to get a phone call from someone at Arsenal and they said they’d like a meeting tomorrow, then it would be easier that way.

“They can tell me whether they’ve got plans to play me in the future or if they want to sell me.

“I’ve heard they want to make some space [in the squad] and some money so I’m not sure.”
