Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos admits that he was involved in a scuffle with David Luiz in training but insists that the situation is now resolved.

Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos has admitted that he was involved in a training ground fracas with David Luiz but has downplayed the severity of the incident.

Ceballos was allegedly left with a bloody nose following an altercation with Luiz last week, although the midfielder quickly took to social media to deny reports of a bust up.

However, Ceballos has now lifted the lid on the incident - admitting that there was a "clash" but the situation was quickly defused at London Colney.

Speaking to The Sun, Ceballos said: "I'm not going to say that there wasn't a clash or a scuffle. It was not an exemplary behaviour but it is good to see Arsenal is alive, that the team has character.

"We are two footballers with very similar leadership qualities and these things can happen. We didn't let a single day go by. We spoke that same afternoon after training. Now we have to learn so it does not happen again."

Arsenal resume their Premier League campaign on Sunday evening when they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Emirates Stadium.
