Official: Martin Odegaard joins Arsenal on loan


Martin Odegaard has officially completed his loan move from Real Madrid to Arsenal.

The Norwegian playmaker will spend the next six months in north London, where he will be looking to play regularly before returning to Real Madrid in the summer.

Odegaard said enough was enough after the Supercopa de Espana, as he asked to leave on loan due to the lack of game time he was having and his relationship with Zinedine Zidane.

Real Sociedad, where Odegaard was on loan last season, expressed an interest in bringing him back to the club, but ultimately the 22-year-old has opted for a new challenge by joining Mikel Arteta‘s Arsenal.
