Arsenal defender William Saliba has been crowned as UNFP Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year.

The £27million defender has been in impressive form for Olympique Marseille, on loan from the Gunners, this season.

Saliba has now come to the end of his loan move and is set to return to North London with his future up in the air.

However, manager Mikel Arteta reportedly wants to keep the towering centre half - and plans to integrate him into his squad for next season.

Arsenal signed Saliba two years ago from St Etienne.
