Darren Pratley insists that he does not regret leaving the Gunners as a youngster.

Bolton midfielder Darren Pratley has said that he has no regrets over leaving the Gunners as a 15-year-old.

The former Swansea star, 26, admits that he left his boyhood club for Fulham after seeing other players struggle to make an impact above their age group.

Speaking ahead of Bolton's trip to the Emirates, Pratley insisted that he still believes that he made the right decision.

"I was [at Arsenal] with David Bentley, Justin Hoyte, Steve Sidwell but none were pushing above their age group," Pratley is quoted as saying in The Sun. "I went to Fulham and in a couple of months I was playing in the reserves so it worked out.

"Arsenal are going through a rough time and hopefully we can carry that on."

Pratley joined Bolton earlier this summer on a free transfer, signing a four-year deal at the club.
