Hector Bellerin

Spanish youth international Hector Bellerin has joined Watford on loan until January 2014.

The 18-year-old defender will team up with the Championship side as he looks to gain valuable first-team experience.

Having signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2012 after a series of eye-catching performances for the Under-21 side, Hector made his first-team debut in the Capital One Cup tie against West Bromwich Albion earlier this season, coming on as a substitute in extra-time.

The pacy right-back was also a member of the Spanish Under-19 side that reached the semi-finals of the UEFA European Under-19 Championships in the summer.

Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Hector the best of luck during his time with Gianfranco Zola’s side.
