Arsenal defender Julio Pleguezuelo has signed for Dutch Eredivisie club FC Twente following the expiration of his contract with the Gunners.

His transfer to FC Twente was confirmed by the Dutch club.

The 22-year-old has signed a two-year contract with FC Twente with the option of another year.

Spanish defender Julio Pleguezuelo joins FC Twente after his Arsenal contract ended this summer.

Julio Pleguezuelo spent two years at the famed La Masia Academy before signing for Arsenal in 2013.

The Spaniard spent six years in North London before moving to FC Twente.

He didn’t make any single appearance in the Premier League.

His only outing for the Arsenal senior team came during the 2-1 win over League One side Blackpool in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

Julio Pleguezuelo captained the Arsenal youth teams during his time with the Gunners and also spent some time in Spain with clubs like Mallorca and Gimnastic de Terragona.

The Spaniard was sent out on loan to the two aforementioned Spanish sides.

Despite the average defensive showing from Arsenal during the just concluded Premier League season, Julio Pleguezuelo didn’t get his chance to shine for the Gunners in the league.

The Gunners conceded 51 goals in just 38 games in the Premier League.
