Arsenal have confirmed that Hector Bellerin has signed a long-term contract at the club.
Arseblog News revealed a couple of weeks ago that the Spaniard had put pen-to-paper on new terms and Arsene Wenger dropped a big hint last Friday of an imminent announcement.
The 21-year-old is believed to have committed his future to the club until 2023, a six and a half year deal, that sees his pay increase to £100,000 a week. He last signed a deal in the summer of 2015.
Bellerin has enjoyed a stellar rise since making his debut in September 2014, scoring three goals in 86 first team appearances, becoming a regular for the Spanish under-21s and earning a call-up to Euro 2016.
The extension will put to bed rumours linking Bellerin with Manchester City and old club Barcelona.
It’s expected that fellow defender Laurent Koscielny will also sign extension in the coming weeks while negotiations are moving forward with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
