Hector Bellerin has signed a new long-term contract.
The 21-year-old has developed into one of the Premier League’s outstanding full-backs since breaking into the first team in 2014/15.
Last season he firmly established his place in our back four, making 44 appearances in all competitions and creating nine goals – third only to Mesut Ozil and Alexis.
Hector’s displays earned him a place in the 2015/16 PFA Team of the Year and a call up to the Spain national team for Euro 2016.
Having previously played for Barcelona, Hector joined us as a scholar in 2011. He impressed at youth level before making his first-team debut in the League Cup in September 2014.
We look forward to Hector’s continued progress with the club in the years to come.
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory process.
