​DONE DEAL: Arsenal boss Arteta thanks Bellerin after Barcelona complete signing

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has joined Barcelona on a free transfer.

The Gunners agreed to terminate Bellerin's contract to facilitate a move.

Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barca as a 16-year-old in 2011.

He made 308 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 15 goals.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said about the move: "We today say goodbye to Hector and we thank him so much for his loyalty and commitment to Arsenal Football Club.

"During his 11 years with Arsenal, Hector won three FA Cups and made nearly 250 appearances – such a huge contribution to the club. I'm privileged to have played in the same squad as Hector for three seasons, wearing the Arsenal shirt and sharing many great moments on and off the football pitch together.

"We thank you Hector and wish you and your family all the best for your return to Barcelona."
