Edu Pleased With ‘Quality’ Addition Soares
Arsenal Technical Director Edu Gaspar hailed the loan signing of Southampton right-back Cedric Soares on transfer deadline day.
The Gunners moved to bring the 28-year old Portuguese in from their Premier League counterparts to add depth to their defensive options.
The right-back joins on an initial loan deal with an option for the North London giants to buy in the summer if they wish.
Edu Gaspar was pleased to seal the deal, telling Arsenal.com, “Cedric is a defender with good experience of the Premier League, and of course at international level.
“He is another strong addition to our defensive unit who will provide our squad with quality. I know he is a player who plays with absolute full commitment and energy.
“We are all looking forward to going into the last stages of the season with Cedric as part of the club.”
