Arsenal extend players contracts

Four players extend stay at Arsenal, says the club.

Arsenal have confirmed contract extension for the quartet of David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares, and Dani Ceballos.

The duo of Mari and Soares respectively got four-year extension, while Ceballos extended his loan from Real Madrid until the end of the current 2019/20 season.

Meanwhile, under fire David Luiz, signed from Chelsea at the beginning of the season got a year extension.

“We are delighted to confirm that defenders David Luiz, Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares have agreed contracts to stay with us beyond the end of this season,” read a message on the club’s official website.

“In addition midfielder, Dani Ceballos has extended his loan from Real Madrid until the end of the current 2019/20 season.
“David Luiz, who signed from Chelsea last summer, has agreed a new one-year deal. Pablo will complete his formal move from Flamengo on a long-term deal when the transfer window opens next month.

“Cedric will also join us permanently on a long-term deal from Southampton.”


Reacting to the extension, Edu, the club’s technical director said, “I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future.

“They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.
“David is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.
“With Pablo, we’re all disappointed he got injured at Manchester City. Since Mikel arrived here he was asking for a central defender who was left-footed. We were really pleased with Pablo – his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality. Unfortunately, he has that injury but of course, we are really happy to keep him for the future.
“Cedric is also going to be an important player.

“He has been unlucky with the injuries but he is close to being ready and gives us more strength in the right-back position. We’re also pleased Dani will finish the season here. He is making a good contribution and we look forward to him having a strong finish to the season.”
