Arsenal fans fly 'Back Arteta Kroenke Out' banner before Aston Villa defeat as they support boss' transfer demands

ARSENAL fans flew a huge banner over Villa Park as they supported their frustrated manager's transfer demands.

The blunt message – "Back Arteta Kroenke Out" – was even longer than the plane it trailed from as the Gunners down below slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

Arsenal boss Arteta has already warned club owner Stan Kroenke not to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – with the Spaniard also insisting the star striker wants to sign a new contract.

Aubameyang started up front alongside Alexandre Lacazette at Villa – but Arsenal have no experienced back up for those two proven goal-getters.

Arsenal struggled to create chances against the relegation strugglers with Eddie Nketiah coming closest, heading a corner aghainst the post.

Fans have grown increasingly worried that Gabon ace Aubameyang will be sold this summer.

The 31-year-old's current deal runs out in 2021, with Barcelona – and at one stage Manchester United – among his apparent suitors.
