Hector Bellerin is the latest Arsenal star to sign a new deal, with the Spaniard reportedly putting pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at the Emirates until 2019.
The news has not officially broken yet, but respected Spanish journalist Kike Marin has taken to Twitter to reveal that the deal is done.
His word cannot be taken as fact, but he is usually fairly reliable.

Hopefully the young right-back’s new deal will officially be announced on the Arsenal site soon, as his performances this season are likely to attract suitors in the summer.
The 19-year-old has been in fine form this campaign, and has emerged as our first choice at the back in the absence of Mathieu Debuchy.
It’s fantastic to hear he has committed his long term future to the club, as he looks to have the potential to become one of the best full-backs in world football.
