The contract of the four was due to expire on the 30th of June and Tuesday was the deadline to agree on a new contract to keep them until at least the end of 2019 – 2020 season
Arsenal extended Dani Ceballo’s loan from La Liga giants, Real Madrid for the remainder of the campaign, while Luiz, Pablo, and Cedric have committed their future to the Gunners
Brazilian International David Luiz signed a new one-year contract while Cedric and Pablo from Southampton and Flamengo respectively will be permanently art Emirates when the transfer window opens. The two have agreed to a four-year contract until 2014.
“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,” technical director Edu told the club’s official website.
“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 behavior, 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.”
