LONDON, United kingdom, Nov 8- The agent of Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has revealed that the fullback is on the verge of signing a new extended contract at the north London club.
The Spaniard’s current deal still has over two years to run, but representative Albert Botines stated that his client is looking forward to adding a few more years on to his stay at the Gunners.
“We are speaking and are now a lot closer than we were two weeks ago. In a normal situation he will sign,” he told Sky Sports.
“Hector is very happy at Arsenal. This would be the fourth time he has signed a new contract at the club and it is clear he has made good progress.”
Bellerin had been linked with a return to Barcelona, but joked last month that he wouldn’t even answer the phone if they called.
“If I wanted to play [at Barca] I would have stayed there,” he said. “I was very happy when Arsenal showed interest in me and I decided to come here. I’m not looking back, I’m just looking to help Arsenal.”
