Nacho Monreal says that he will remember his time with Malaga fondly.

Arsenal's new signing Nacho Monreal has said that Malaga will always have a special place in his heart.

The 26-year-old moved to north London for £8.6m in the recent transfer window, bringing an end to his 18-month stay at La Rosaleda.

"My move happened very fast, so I haven't had the opportunity to say goodbye to fans and teammates," Monreal told reporters.

"I want to thank everyone for a fabulous year and a half and the welcome and treatment I received from everyone at the club.

"I wish Malaga all the best – the club will always be in my heart."

Monreal made his debut for the Gunners in Saturday's 1-0 win over Stoke City.
