Ainsley Maitland-Niles has blasted Arsenal for their delay in his transfer in an astonishing Instagram post.
The full-back has been trying to secure a transfer to Everton, who have expressed an interest in the Englishman arriving on loan this summer.
He has made two appearances under Mikel Arteta this summer, having made just 21 last season.
There are less than 48 hours to get the deal done, though, with Transfer Deadline Day on Tuesday.
But The Mirror reported on Monday that Arsenal suddenly performed a U-turn, looking to block the 23-year-old's moves.
And Ainsley Maitland-Niles has made his feelings known by sharing a brutally honest message on his Instagram story.
"All I wanna do is go where I'm wanted and where I'm gonna play" along with three crying emojis.
And the Englishman made sure the Gunners received the message by tagging their Instagram handle in the post.
The 23-year-old has been in north London since 2003, having worked up the club's academy.
Maitland-Niles registered 199 senior appearances before Arteta's first full season in charge at Arsenal.

While he made 21 appearances last season, he appeared to fall out of favour with the Spaniard as he was sent on loan to West Brom in January.
The Englishman made 12 appearances for the Baggies and could not help them avoid relegation to the Championship.
His only Premier League appearance this season came as a 71st-minute substitute in the 5-0 hammering against Manchester City.
While Arteta gave him just under half an hour in the 6-0 Carabao Cup win against his former loan side West Brom.
Everton reportedly expressed an interest in loaning Maitland-Niles, hoping to use their strong relationship with the club.
The Toffees previously signed both Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi from the Gunners.
Newcastle are also a reported suitor for the England international with Arsenal open to letting him leave the club this summer.
