The Bosnia and Herzegovina international has fallen out of favour in North London, with Kieran Tierney overthrowing him as the club’s favoured option at left-back or left centre-back, and will now leave the club temporarily until the summer.
Strangely enough, the manager was only quizzed on the subject this morning in his pre-match press conference, and appeared to hint about false rumours that will emerge, only for the news to be announced by the club hours later.
