From all indications, the English Premier League club Arsenal will no longer be doing away with England defender Rob Holding on a permanent deal but will have him give way by embarking on a season loan.
Rob Holding had a very impressive performance for the Gunners against Liverpool in the Community Shield game and that might have influenced the loan decision ahead of a permanent sale.
It is understood that Newcastle are very interested in his landing the 24-year-old and are in talks with the Gunners for a loan deal this week with talkSport also confirming this report.

With Arsenal having two new defenders- Willaim Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes to add to the presence of David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papa, and Rob Holding, it is compulsory for one or two to give way this summer window.
Rob Holding has proven that he could still have a future with the North London outfit, especially if he is able to defeat the injury that has consistently taken him out of action at the Emirates Stadium.
Howbeit, the Gunners seem to be ready for the new season with the availability of the crop of defenders but will have to recruit more for the midfield position and possibly, the attack.
