Bellerin extends Watford loan

Hector Bellerin is to extend his loan spell at Watford until the end of the season.

The Spanish right back initially moved on a short-term basis until this month, but he’ll now stay with Hornets until the end of the current campaign.

Speaking on Twitter, he said, “So happy and grateful for extending my loan with Watford till the end of the season. Now, time to put in work!”

The former Barcelona youth has made 7 appearances so far since arriving in November, and is highly thought of at Arsenal. Gaining valuable experience, especially at a time when there’s still doubt over the right back position for next season, could stand him in good stead.

Good luck to him.
