  • Print

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain - Real Sociedad says Carlos Vela has signed a new four-year contract after the Spanish club "reached an agreement" with Arsenal to keep the Mexican forward.

Vela transfered from Arsenal to Sociedad in 2011 with the English club maintaining a buyback option.

Sociedad did not reveal any more details for the new agreement.

The 25-year-old Vela has 47 goals in four seasons for Sociedad, helping it earn berths in European competition in the last two campaigns.

Vela says "we knew that this wouldn't be simple, but luckily it turned out well and all parties are happy."
