Real Madrid capture Real Betis midfielder Ceballos

Real Madrid capture Real Betis midfielder Ceballos

And the 20-year-old says he is hungry for success at the La Liga and Champions League titleholders and is fully deserving of the opportunity.

Real Madrid new boy Dani Ceballos insists he will do all he can to make the club's illustrious history even greater.

Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos have joined from Atletico Madrid and Real Betis respectively, while Jesus Vallejo and Marcos Llorente have returned from their loans from last season to be incorporated into the first-team squad.

The Spanish giants had long running interest in Ceballos, along with fierce rivals Barcelona and following his impressive performances for Spain at the Under-21 European Championships - where he was named player of the tournament - Real Madrid wrapped up the deal in a timely fashion.

The key to this new approach seems to be Zidane, who is taking advantage of the respect that people at the club show him, including Perez, to ensure that he influences all decisions.

With the likes of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Toni Kroos at the Frenchman's disposal, Ceballos, who won 79 take-ons - the third highest total across the entire division - will give Madrid even more depth in central midfield.

"I will aim to show that I deserve to wear this shirt".

Ceballos will officially be unveiled as a Los Blancos player next week, but he's penned a message to the club's supporters on social media in which he's expressed his hunger at winning silverware at the Santiago Bernabeu.
