​Arteta explains what Cedric brings to Arsenal

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta believes that right-back Cedric Soares can add new dimensions to the team.

The 28-year-old joined the Gunners in Janiary, initially on loan from Southampton. The deal was made permanent last week.

"He's a different quality in the full-back area than what we have," Arteta said.

"He's a gifted, technical player and is probably the best we have in the final third to make the right decision and attack the box as well.

"He can play in a four or a five, he's a really good player with experience in the Premier League that can help us."
