Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry has urged the club to end his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion, according to reports in the Daily Star.

The German under-21 international has failed to captivate the eyes of Tony Pulis during his time on loan with the Midlands side, however, he is contracted to remain with the club until the end of the current campaign.

Gnabry has played just 12 minutes this season and has been demoted to play with the under-21 squad in order to gain some level of regular football.
