Arsenal boss Arteta hails Ceballos performance: Will he stay?

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was delighted with Dani Ceballos' performance in their draw with Leicester City.

The on-loan Real Madrid midfielder shone in the 1-1 draw.

Arteta enthused, "He was superb again, I think him and Granit have created a really good understanding. They give us a lot of balance and a lot of stability with the ball to make the right decision in moments of transition and they are evolving a lot together. Defensively, Dani has made a big step forward with the way he is pressing, the amount of interceptions that he is putting in and he is enjoying it."

Asked if he wants Ceballos to stay long-term, Arteta added: "I am really happy with him, I think it is something that the club has to go a little bit further with Real Madrid on. At the moment he is playing very well, I am really happy with him and he is a big talent and still has a lot of things to improve."
