Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin used an agency to find a new club this summer, with the defender joining Real Betis.

According to the Athletic, the Spanish international enlisted the help of Analytics FC to determine which club would be best suited for the right-back.

Bellerin was eager to depart Arsenal this summer for a new challenge, and the fullback eventually joined La Liga side Betis on a season-long loan move.

As per the report, Bellerin is one of the few players to turn to analytics to determine which club would be best for him. Memphis Depay took a similar approach when leaving Manchester United.

Whilst Bellerin might not reach similar heights, it is still interesting that the defender took to an external source to sign for a new club, with Betis now the defender’s new home.
