Arsenal Confirm David Luiz Has Signed A New One-Year Contract

David Luiz Signed New One-Year Contract
Arsenal have confirmed David Luiz has extended his contract until the end of next season.

His original deal was due to end on June 30 but an agreement has been reached for the defender to stay on for the 2020/21 campaign.

The Gunners also moved to make Pablo Mari’s loan move permanent – for a fee of around £14million – while Cedric Soares is to sign a four-year contract following his temporary switch from Southampton.

Loan midfielder Dani Ceballos has similarly reached an agreement with the north London club.

Technical director Edu told the club’s official website: “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.”
