Ceballos reveals why he stayed put at Arsenal

Dani Ceballos has revealed that he chose to remain at Arsenal to repay the faith shown in him by the club after signing him on loan from Real Madrid last summer. The Spain midfielder moved to the Emirates in July 2019 to get more first-team action ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 competition. He started off brilliantly but a combination of injuries and departure of Unai Emery has affected his chances at the club. Reports were rife that he could leave in January as Valencia were keen for him to end his loan contract and move to the Mestalla.
