David Luiz, three others sign contract extensions at Arsenal

Arsenal's David Luiz and three other players have extended their contracts with the London club, the Gunners have confirmed.

The Sun reports that Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares have both penned long-term deals and Dani Ceballos has extended his loan spell from Real Madrid.

Ceballos extended his stay with the North London until the end of the current campaign.

Speaking on the club website, technical director Edu claimed the four stars bring the right "balance" to the squad.

He said: "I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future.

"They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed.

"They bring the right balance to our squad.

"David is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team.

"His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone."

Edu continued: "With Pablo we are disappointed he got injured at Manchester City.

"Since Mikel arrived here he was asking for a central defender who was left-footed. We were really pleased with Pablo - his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality."
