Arsenal's Dani Ceballos says he wants to pay back the club for the faith they showed in him in the summer by adding his weight to a late push for a Champions League place.
The 23-year-old told Marca: 'Arsenal took a chance on me and I want to pay them back that faith with hard work and turning the situation around.
'If I do it, then it will mean even more because I have come back to help the team after injury. It will be a better outcome than to have taken the cowardly decision to walk away and leave the team in the lurch. Arsenal put faith in me and I can't let them down.'
