In an interview with Canal Sur Radio, Ceballos talked about the importance of playing consistently ahead of the European Championships and the Olympic Games in 2021.

“My objective is to play in the European Championship and Olympic Games, and when they are happening you need to find a team where you feel important,” Ceballos revealed.

“The future is far away, we can’t predict what will happen in a month and a half. Now we are focused on the postponed game against Manchester City on the 17th.”

The Andalusia based program could not help but push Ceballos on his next move. Queuing up questions regarding his former club, Real Betis.

“I won’t deny that my team is Betis, they are the club that I love and the one which allowed me to develop as a professional footballer,” he admitted.

“The feeling I have for them is different to every other club I’ve been at. Right now, realistically, Betis has a team to be in the top six in Spain, they have high quality internationals and they must fight for European football, they have a good dynamic at this moment and we hope it can continue in such a way,” Ceballos concluded.

It seems another loan move will be on the cards with a return to Arsenal, a move to Valencia who were heavily linked in the winter, or a return to boyhood club Betis all likely.
