Arsenal's Bellerin waves goodbye to Betis

Hector Bellerin has made an emotional farewell to boyhood club Real Betis as he prepares to return to Arsenal after his loan move.

The Spaniard has spent the last season on loan in Seville - with the move helping Bellerin "fall in love again" with football.

"Even if I tried I'm finding it very difficult to express what this year has meant to me,' he said.  "There are no words I can find to describe my feelings, so hopefully, these pictures will help you all understand.

"Thanks to everyone in the Betis universe for helping me fall in love again with this sport, for all your passion and for making me feel like one of your own from the start. 

"Thanks to my family and my people for their unconditional love and support and for introducing me from early to this passion called Betis. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU and I hope we can meet again. Viva el Betis."
