Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles Involved In Serious Road Accident And Flips £105,000 Mercedes

Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles was involved in a serious traffic incident on Wednesday morning and saw his £105,000 Mercedes flipped.

Maitland-Niles was unharmed in the collision which occurred near Enfield on the M25 at around 6am.

Images on social media have shown the 23-year-old stood at the side of the road surveying the damage.

An Arsenal spokesperson told The Sun: "We're aware of a car accident involving Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Ainsley is unhurt and at home."

England international Maitland-Niles spent the second half of last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion in a bid for more first-team action.

The Baggies were relegated from the Premier League, but Maitland-Niles impressed in his 12 appearances.

Last season also saw him earn a first call-up to the Three Lions squad and he made his debut against Denmark in September.

A police spokesperson said: "Police were called at approximately 6:10am to reports of two cars in collision on the M25 anticlockwise carriageway at junction 25.

"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. There were no reports of any injuries and enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing."

Despite rising through the club's Hale End academy system, Maitland-Niles admitted earlier this year it could be time to leave.

Manager Mikel Arteta had started deploying the youngster as a wing-back when his desired position is in midfield.

He told the Telegraph: "I want a decision. I want some clarity. And then hopefully I can get to work with whoever I need to get to work with.

"Whether that is finding a new club or whether that is carrying on with my training. I would like some kind of indication of what is happening. Where they [Arsenal] see me.

"If it works out it works out, if it doesn't then kiss Arsenal goodbye. It's been a long journey but a proud one at that.

"Maybe they still want to do something and things could change. If not, there's always other teams.

"It would be easier to do it now than waiting for pre-season to kick in and everything is super busy.

"And they can't answer their phones because they are doing too much work. You know how the football world works."
