Bellerin to be offered new contract


Hector Bellerin is to be offered a new contract by Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger has revealed.

Bellerin is under contract until 2019 but his impressive form for the Gunners has resulted in him being linked with a move to Barcelona.

The Spain defender joined Arsenal's academy from Barca's La Masia in 2011 and the Spanish giants are reported to be keen on re-signing him as a replacement for Dani Alves.

With three years to run on his contract, Wenger has no desire to let the player leave the Emirates and has revealed the club are keen to tie him down to a long-term deal.

"I'm surprised by the speculations - he has nearly three years to go," Wenger said. "We always try to get the players to a level where they deserve to be, so we'll try to extend his contract.

"But for me his long-term future is here."

Bellerin made his first-team debut in 2014 and went on to play in all but two of their Premier League games last season.

"He has been fantastic, let's not forget that his first game he had a nightmare when I played him and the year before [on loan] at Watford he didn't play, his progress has been absolutely spectacular," Wenger explained.

"He has top mental strength. He loves to be here and has responsibilities in the dressing room. For a young age, it's remarkable."

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
