Dani Ceballos rejoins Arsenal
Arsenal have just confirmed the re-signing of midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid on a season-long loan.
The Spaniard produced some encouraging performances under the guidance of Mikel Arteta in the second half of last season and helped Arsenal to win the FA Cup.
Ceballos had been linked with a return to Real Betis but ended up heading back to north London.
The 24-year-old will continue to wear the No 8 shirt for Arsenal.
Ceballos made a tremendous impact on his home debut against Burnley last season as he provided two assists but he endured some difficulties thereafter.
However, Arteta helped to get the best out of his compatriot and Ceballos could have a key part to play for Arsenal again this season.
Technical director Edu said: “We’re thrilled to have Dani back with us for the new season. We all know his qualities after an impressive 2019/2020 campaign, which ended with him playing a key role in our FA Cup success. We’re excited to add Dani to the list of quality players we are bringing in.”
Mikel Arteta said: “Dani was an integral part of our team last season and finished the season in excellent form. I love Dani’s passion and commitment and he’s a highly skilful player. We’re all delighted to welcome him back and we look forward to seeing him pick up where he left off.”
