Arsenal midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide is poised to join Ligue One side Angers on loan for the rest of the season, according to France Football.

The publication reports that the the French club have an agreement in principle with the Gunners, although they have no option to buy the 20 year old in the summer.

Reine-Adelaide was signed from Lens for €2.5m in 2015, and looked to have made his breakthrough into the Arsenal senior side after making six first team appearances last season.

However, the France Under 19 international has not featured for the Gunners in any competition this campaign, and has had to be satisfied with matches for the Under 23 side.

The attacking midfielder should gain some much needed first team experience by moving to Angers. They currently sit 16th in the French top flight, but Reine-Adelaide will likely experience a relegation battle with the club just two points off the drop zone after 23 games.
