Speaking to IbaiLlanos, Saul said: “It is very important that [Kepa Arrizabalaga] be there.

“It is an important step. If he had not been there, it would have been different.

“Going on loan for a year and having a partner with whom I have been spending many years in the lower categories of the (Spain) National Team is important.”
