Ceballos has joined Arsenal on loan from Madrid, and he has shown signs of promise at the Emirates Stadium.
The playmaker may not have made himself a permanent starter for Unai Emery’s side yet, but his quality has been seen in flashes.
And Ceballos insists that he would rather be at Arsenal than Madrid right now.
"Going to Arsenal has been a very important step in my career," said Ceballos.
"I don't feel sorry for not being in Madrid. Right now I am where I want to be and I am very happy. My idea was to go out, play and enjoy football. In the previous two years I had not done so.”
Ceballos’s future at Arsenal is very much up in the air, and it remains to be seen whether the Gunners will push for a permanent deal at the end of the season.
If Ceballos was to join Arsenal on a permanent transfer he would bring creativity and poise to their midfield ranks for the years ahead.
Ceballos’s future could well depend on how well Arsenal’s season goes.
If the Gunners can make it into the top four they will surely be in a better position to make a bid for Ceballos when his loan expires.
Emery’s side have made a solid start to their bid to claim a Champions League spot and currently sit in third place in the Premier League table.
