Arsenal loaned out Hector Bellerin to La Liga side Real Betis last summer and it’s safe to say, the Spaniard is having a fantastic time there.

The right-back joined the Gunners all the way back in 2011, when he was still a teenager. He was handed his debut by Arsene Wenger and many Arsenal fans were convinced that he’d be a future captain.

Sadly, a terrible knee injury really hurt his confidence and he never quite recovered from that. He wanted to go back home in the summer and Mikel Arteta granted him his wish.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

Bellerin has been a regular at Betis and even starred in the Copa del Rey final, assisting Borja Iglesias’ goal.

Real Betis mock Arsenal fan after Hector Bellerin wins a trophy

Back in September last year, after Bellerin joined Betis, the Arsenal man boldly claimed in an interview that he decided to leave the Emirates in order to win silverware elsewhere.

“I’ve left Arsenal to win things with Real Betis. I’m not here for a holiday,” Bellerin said, as per The Mirror.

That statement went viral on social media, prompting one Arsenal supporter to make fun of Bellerin. “Wait a minute, did Bellerin join Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid?” the fan tweeted.

After Betis lifted the Copa del Rey, the club’s official Twitter handle decided to hit back at the supporter.

Bellerin likely to join Betis permanently

Bellerin will have just a year left on his Arsenal contract this summer.

The Gunners have Takehiro Tomiyasu as their first-choice right-back, while reports have revealed that they’re looking to bring in a new player in that position as well.

That will all but end Bellerin’s Arsenal career and the Spaniard is expected to sign for Betis on a permanent deal.

Reports claimed this week that Bellerin wants to join the Beticos this summer and is even prepared to lower his wages to get the deal over the line. This seems like a fairly straightforward transfer to complete but it will be interesting to see how much money Arteta and Edu will demand to let him go.
