Former City loan star Kieran Gibbs is keen to add to the loan experience he gained at Carrow Road this season, having only just returned to Arsenal.

The 18-year-old midfielder made seven appearances for the Canaries during his three-month spell before returning to the Gunners' London Colney training ground on Monday and making a goalscoring return for Arsenal Reserves at Villa Park on Tuesday.

His last minute equaliser and all round performance made an impression on those in attendance and now the youngster wants to build on his time at Norwich with a loan move next season, be it back on loan at the Canaries' own Colney training ground or at another club.

“I was only there for three months but I have learned some good things at Norwich. Realistically though I think I need to go out again for a few more months before I have got the right amount of experience,” Gibbs told Arsenal's official website.

“It is has been a positive season and things are looking good so hopefully I can keep it going. On loan, I learned the value of training [with a first-team] and the whole matchday experience of travelling. Winning is also more important when you step up to that level.

“I have to wait and see what they [Arsenal] want to do with me. If they want me to go on loan again I am happy to do so and then we can see from there.

“It has been discussed. I don't think I would want to do a whole season away from the club and I am quite keen to get pre-season here. That would be good for me I think as I could be given a chance with the first team squad.

“That is always in your mind but you just have to get your head down and see what happens. Hopefully I could get my chance in the last game, but we will see.”
