Arsenal has through the club’s official website announced the contract extension of four of their first team players. The Players include Pablo Mari, David Liuz, Cedric Soares and Dani Cebbalos.

Here’s is what the club’s technical director Edu has to say regarding the extension of the players contract

“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.”

It’s been reported that Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari were handed a four years contract each, while David Liuz signed one year contract extension. Dani Cebbalos who is on loan from Real Madrid agreed a temporary extension till the end of the current season.
