Arsenal have announced the signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid on loan until the end of the season.

 

The 22-year-old has left the La Liga giants in a bid for regular playing time.

Odegaard made just nine appearances in all competitions for Madrid this season.

 

His decision to join the Gunners was aided by a chat with the Arsenal manager.

“I spoke to him (Arteta) before coming here, of course,” Odegaard told the Arsenal website.

 


“That was very important to me and he seems like a great coach and I liked his ideas, the way he sees football, and also the way he is.

 

“He gave me a great feeling and it was important for me to come here. It was crucial. ”

The Norwegian midfielder has been assigned jersey number 11.
