Hector Bellerin has finally put pen to paper and signed a contract extension with Arsenal.
The rightback’s existing deal with the Gunners runs out in 2019 and now, if reports are to be believed, he’s extended this for another six-and-a-half years. Remarkable.

Speculation regarding the 21-year-old’s future has been rife since the beginning of the season with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City being linked.
However, Bellerin has chosen to stay with his ‘home’ at Arsenal and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Bellerin is a key starter for Arsenal when fit and although he’s out for four weeks with an ankle injury, this is still a huge deal.
According to Arsenal.com, the Spaniard actually made the most appearances next to Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez last season. 44.
Although the details of the contract extension are yet to be confirmed, we’ll bring you what we can as soon as we know it.
