Arsenal's William Saliba Given Suspended Ban For Explicit Video

William Saliba has been getting back to playing first team football since January, with his loan move to Nice appearing to work out quite well.

However, things looked like they might go slightly off the rails recently when it was discovered that he filmed an explicit video of one of his French youth teammates which was later leaked to the press.

Saliba has been given a suspended one-month ban from international duties, while the teammate, Ulrick Eneme Ella, has been given three months - with only one of those suspended, according to GFFN.

The video was posted to Saliba's Snapchat when he was 16, and has since resurfaced. Neither Saliba or Brighton under 23s player Ella are banned from appearing for their club sides.

Arsenal fans will be hoping that this draws a line under the episode, and means that Saliba can get back to his football.

After surprisingly being left out of first team action by Mikel Arteta after being signed in the summer of 2019, Saliba has seemed to struggle to get back to the form that caught the eye of scouts while he was at Saint Ettiene.

However, the loan move back to France appears to have helped him get back on track. He has been a regular in the Nice starting line-up, making 15 Ligue 1 appearances in the last few months.

Supporters will be hoping that this means he'll be able to get back to the Emirates and make an impact, especially as Mikel Arteta and co. look to be struggling to make it in to any European competitions for next season.

Will Saliba make it in north London?
