DONE DEAL: Levante sign former Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi

Levante have announced the signing of former Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi.

The Germany international had been without a club following the expiration of his short-term contract with Schalke at the end of the 2020/21 season.

The centre-back was in talks to join Italian outfit Torino last month, although the Serie A side opted not to take a punt on the 29-year-old.

Levante promptly swooped and have subsequently handed the defender an 18-month contract at the Estadio Ciudad.

An excerpt of a club statement read: "Levante UD has reached an agreement with Shkodran Mustafi (04/17/1992, Bad Hersfeld, Germany) for the incorporation of the footballer to the ranks of the Levantine team until June 2023, with the option of one more season."

An elated Mustafi said: "From the first moment I liked the idea of coming to Levante."

He later added: "We are going to give everything to take the club as high as possible."
