Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has declared his loyalty for Arsenal claiming he isn’t interested in a move away from the club anytime soon.
The young right back was linked with a move back to Barcelona during the season but he has now squashed those rumours and insists his future is at the Emirates.
“I say every year that England is my home now,” the defender told reporters at the unveiling of the new Support Soccer campus, as quoted by Goal.
“I’ve lived there for many years; my family and my girlfriend are there. I’m very happy there so I don’t see myself anywhere other than Arsenal.
“I’m very happy [about being in the team of the year] because it’s chosen by players and coaches.
“They’re people who know a lot about football and the fact that they have chosen me as the best right-back of the season makes me very proud.
“But I have to thank my team-mates for making things so much easier!”
Bellerin also talked about facing his boyhood club Barcelona who are reportedly interested in his services and the Spaniard admitted it was a beautiful experience facing the Catalan giants.
“How did it feel to play against Barca? For me, Barca was where I grew up since I was tiny, from eight years old,” he concluded.
“My dream when I was at Barca was to play at Camp Nou and I did – just not wearing the shirt I’d expected when I was little.
“It was something very special and beautiful.”
Bellerin has been exceptional for the Gunners this season and was rewarded with a place in the PFA team of the year.
