Dani Ceballos rejoins Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid


London: Dani Ceballos has rejoined Arsenal for a second season on loan from Spanish club Real Madrid, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

Ceballos scored two goals in 36 appearances for the Gunners last season, helping Mikel Arteta’s side win the FA Cup.

“Dani was an integral part of our team last season and finished the season in excellent form,” said Arteta.

“I love Dani’s passion and commitment and he’s a highly-skilled player. We’re all delighted to welcome him back and we look forward to seeing him pick up where he left off,” he added.

Ceballos will not be available for Arsenal’s Premier League season opener away to newly-promoted Fulham on September 12 as he will be required to quarantine for 14 days due to the UK’s coronavirus rules on travelers from Spain.
