Hector Bellerin has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal

Hecto Bellerin has taken to social media to reveal that he considers Arsenal his “home” after signing a new five-year contract with the club on Monday.

The right-back has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top defenders since breaking into the Arsenal first-team two years ago.

The full-back has become a regular fixture in the starting line-up at The Emirates and is often one of the first names on the Arsenal team sheet.

Bellerin had been touted as a possible transfer target for Barcelona in recent months, but the 21-year-old has now put pen to paper on a new “long-term” contract.

Bellerin shared the video above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “A lot has changed in 5 years since I first joined the club. This is my home. The club who gave me my first opportunity. The club I will be at for many years.”

The length of Bellerin’s new contract has not been disclosed by Arsenal.
