Arsene Wenger has been handed some good news as Arsenal prepare for Wednesday’s Champions League affair with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Gunners have been enduring a minor dip in form so far in November after back-to-back draws in the Premier League which were sandwiched by the news that key defender Hector Bellerin would be sidelined for at least a month with an ankle injury.
However, the Spaniard, who was also dealing with an uncertain future at the club following speculation that Barcelona and a host of big clubs were planning on luring him away from Arsenal, has now renewed his commitment to Wenger’s side.
The club confirmed on Monday that Bellerin had signed a new six-and-a-half-year contract at the club, snubbing any interest of from elsewhere.
“I’m really, really happy and this club is my home right now,” Bellerin said. “I’ve been here for more than five years now so I was really, really excited when the club told me that they wanted to extend my contract.
“I wasn’t thinking about anything else other than staying here and continuing my development here. This is where I’m happy. I’m just very grateful and pleased to have signed.”
