ARSENAL have confirmed contract extensions for four players including David Luiz.
Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares have both penned long-term deals and Dani Ceballos has extended his loan spell from Real Madrid.
Arsenal have handed Luiz a one-year contract extension just a week after his horror show against Manchester City.
The Brazilian defender, 33, took full blame for the 3-0 defeat after he gave away a penalty and received a red card.
Arsenal have also secured long-term permanent deals for Mari from Flamengo and Cedric from Southampton.
Ceballos has extended his stay with the North London until the end of the current campaign.
Speaking on the club website, technical director Edu claimed the four stars bring the right “balance” to the squad.
He said: “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.
“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.”
