Arsenal: Hector Bellerin joins Real Betis, Reiss Nelson to Feyenoord

Arsenal: Hector Bellerin joins Real Betis, Reiss Nelson to Feyenoord

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has joined Spanish side Real Betis on loan and Reiss Nelson has completed a season-long loan move to Dutch side Feyenoord.

Spain international Bellerin, 26, has two years left on his Gunners contract but has not featured for them this season.

Winger Nelson, 21, has played 48 times for Arsenal, scoring four goals.

The England Under-21 international spent 2018-19 on loan at Hoffenheim.

“I’m looking forward to playing in this beautiful stadium,” said Nelson. “Feyenoord is a wonderful club and a great challenge for me. I hope I can get the fans cheering soon.”

In another season-long loan exit from Arsenal, Icelandic goalkeeper Alex Runarsson, 26, has joined Belgian side OH Leuven. He made six appearances last season but has dropped down the order after the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale.

Bellerin – signed from Barcelona’s academy in 2011 – has not been a regular starter for the Gunners since suffering a serious knee injury in 2019 but made 25 Premier League appearances last season.

Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares have started at right-back in the north London club’s three league games this season, all of which have ended in defeat.

Arsenal have recruited heavily this summer with buys such as centre-back Ben White for £50m, midfielder Martin Odegaard for £30m and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale for an initial £24m.

Maitland-Niles to stay at Arsenal

Meanwhile, Ainsley Maitland-Niles will stay at Arsenal following clear-the-air talks with manager Mikel Arteta.

The England international thought he was going to join Everton on loan before the transfer window closed.

However, Arsenal refused to sanction the move, which triggered a social media post from Maitland-Niles, saying ‘he just wanted to play’.

It is understood the 24-year-old spoke to Arteta about his frustrations on Tuesday.

The talks went well and Maitland-Niles will now remain at Arsenal.

He has made two appearances for the club this season, coming on as a substitute in Saturday’s 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.
