Premier League>> News _Arteta awaiting ‘security decision’ on Arsenal’s training trip to Dubai

Arsenal will assess security measures before giving the all-clear to a mid-season training camp in Dubai during the club’s two-week winter break, manager Mikel Arteta said.

Premier League sides have often used venues in the Middle East for warm weather training, but Manchester United have scrapped their plans to travel next month in the wake of an American air strike at Baghdad airport that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

Arsenal had been set for a four-day camp ahead of their Premier League match against Newcastle United on February 16, but Arteta said security would dictate where the squad ends up going.
