Gunners cut Vela free

Last Updated: Tue, 24 Jun 2014 14:09

Carlos Vela has signed a four-year contract with Real Sociedad, ending the prospect of a return to Arsenal.

The Mexican striker left the Emirates in 2011 but Arsenal retained the right to buy him back for a relatively small fee. However, the Spanish club have now agreed a deal with Arsenal which sees him become their player - with no strings.

A statement on the Real Sociedad website read: "Real Sociedad have reached an agreement with Arsenal FC which will allow Carlos Vela to continue at the club on a permanent basis.

"The player, meanwhile, has signed a contract extension which ties him to Real Sociedad for the next four seasons. The player's previous contract was due to expire in June 2016. The Mexican striker has now formally signed his new contract."

Vela has made 126 appearances for Real in official competitions, scoring 47 goals.
