Dani Ceballos has confirmed his Arsenal exit after penning a farewell message to Gunners supporters.

The Spaniard’s loan spell from Real Madrid has come to an end and he will return to the Bernabeu this summer.

Ceballos initially joined the club at the start of the 2019/20 season, when Unai Emery was still in charge, and played a key role in the FA Cup win after Mikel Arteta took over midway through the campaign, so much so that a deal was reached to see him return the following season.

This term, however, he has been in and out of the side, with Mohamed Elneny having returned from his loan spell at Besiktas to play a more prominent part and Thomas Partey arriving from Atletico Madrid.

“Thanks Arsenal and thanks to all Gunners,” Ceballos wrote.

“For welcoming me with so much love from the very first day I wore this jersey. For letting me experience the feeling of being a Gunner and allowing me to be a part of your family all this time.

“A complicated year - for many reasons- has come to its end. Especially for having missed the chance of living home matches in the Emirates with our supporters.

“Still, I assure you that I will never forget your warmth and support in every moment. I am sure that Arsenal, being a historic and great team, will soon be back on top, winning championships and being a reference as it is and always has been. This club, and especially its supporters, deserve it, and I am confident that they will achieve it.

“Thanks to all those people who are part of the team: coaches, kit men, medical staff, communications and marketing team, employees, managers and especially the supporters.

“All those persons who so often work quietly giving all they have for this great club.

“I want you to know that I have always worked very hard and tried my very best for this crest and this jersey.

“I wish you all the best and the success that I’m sure will come. Let’s go Gunners! Goodbye. Thanks for all!”
