There have been reports of Hector Bellerin being lured by Barcelona and Manchester City but reports have now indicated that the Spaniard will be offered a contract extension with us.

It’s fantastic news and although many of us always suspected the youngster would stay put, as the speculation rattled on I, for one, didn’t feel quite as certain.
