Arsenal have decided to exercise their right to terminate Serge Gnabry's season-long loan deal with West Bromwich Albion, according to the Telegraph.
Gnabry will return to north London with immediate effect, but it is understood he will leave on a temporary basis again in the January transfer window, although is likely to drop down to the Championship in search of a more prominent first-team role.
The young German winger burst onto the scene as a teenager at Arsenal in the 2013/14 season, but spent the entirety of the following campaign on the sidelines with a serious knee injury.

It was hoped that his loan spell at the Hawthorns would help to get his career back on its previous trajectory, but he failed to convince Tony Pulis, who accused Gnabry of not being at the required level to play for the Baggies.
As a result, the 20-year-old has played just 12 minutes of Premier League football this season and hasn't appeared for West Brom since their 3-0 League Cup defeat against Norwich in September.
Despite what Pulis thinks, Gnabry is still highly rated at the Emirates, hence why Arsene Wenger has taken action to bring him back.
Brighton and Hove Albion are one club credited with an interest but they are likely to face competition from a host of their Championship rivals.
