Arsenal is pleased to confirm that Hector Bellerin has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The new deal follows a standout first season in the senior side last term.

The 20-year-old full back featured 28 times for the Gunners in 2014/15, impressing with both his mature defensive work and speedy attacking play. He also showed an eye for goal, netting twice during the campaign.

Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barcelona in summer 2011, and progressed through the club’s academy system before earning promotion to the first team last season.

A Spain youth international, he has represented his country at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level.

Everyone at the club looks forward to Hector’s continued progress with the club.
