Transfer: Martin Odegaard completes loan move to Arsenal from Real Madrid

ENGLAND – 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 LaLiga giants in a bid to get regular football.

Odegaard played just nine times 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 Arsenal’s website.

“That was very important for me and he seems like a top manager and I liked his ideas, the way he sees football and also the way he is.

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

The Norwegian midfielder will wear the number 11 shirt.
