Arsenal ban Maitland-Niles' mother after she hit Wenger's chief negotiator Dick Law

Arsenal have banned the mother of 17-year-old winger Ainsley Maitland-Niles after she apparently assaulted chief negotiator, Dick Law, and threatened to drag her son off the pitch at their training base.

Jule Niles was arrested on suspicion of assaulting two people at the Barclays Premier League club's training ground in March, before being released without charge.

Telegraph Sport report a member of Arsene Wenger's ground staff and another man accused her of striking them, while Law was apparently also hit during the altercation.

No further action was taken by police, but Arsenal told her not to return. Yet despite the ban, Niles arrived at the London Colney base to watch her son face Aston Villa in an Under 21 fixture last Friday.

It has been claimed Niles then threatened to run on to the pitch and drag her son away. Police were called again, and she received a warning.

Injury stopped Maitland-Niles being able to play in the Under 21 game that followed the latest incident, but this will come as an unwelcome distraction for a teenager who already has first-team experience under his belt.

Maitland-Niles made his professional debut for Arsenal at the age of 17 years and 102 days in the Champions League in December, becoming the second-youngest player to represent the club in the history of the competition.

The England Under 18 international then made his Premier League debut just four days later against Newcastle United.
