Dani Ceballos has confirmed his Arsenal exit, posting a long goodbye message on his Instagram feed.
Dani Ceballos did not enjoy a good loan spell at Arsenal. Apart from a few games when football returned after the break last season, he will most likely be remembered for being a one man Europa League wrecking crew.
I like the comment about who will replace Ceballos, as if he's been an important player, rather than a one man Europe league wrecking crew.

As such, his loan was never likely to be extended as nobody seemed to want that, the player himself saying he was better suited to football in Spain.
In his goodbye message, Ceballos thanked the fans a number of times so it seems he is unclear how little they actually care about him.
Ceballos said, “For welcoming me with so much love from the very first day I wore this jersey. For letting me experience the feeling of being a Gunner and allowing me to be a part of your family all this time.
“A complicated year – for many reasons- has come to its end. Especially for having missed the chance of living home matches in the Emirates with our supporters. Still, I assure you that I will never forget your warmth and support in every moment. I am sure that Arsenal, being a historic and great team, will soon be back on top, winning championships and being a reference as it is and always has been. This club, and especially its supporters, deserve it, and I am confident that they will achieve it.
“Thanks to all those people who are part of the team: coaches, kit men, medical staff, communications and marketing team, employees, managers and especially the supporters.
All those persons who so often work quietly giving all they have for this great club.
“I want you to know that I have always worked very hard and tried my very best for this crest and this jersey.
“I wish you all the best and the success that I’m sure will come.
“”Let’s go Gunners!”
“GOODBYE. THANKS FOR ALL!”

In total, Dani Ceballos played 77 times for Arsenal, scoring two goals and assisting five.
He also won an FA Cup, so he’s still better than Tottenham.
