Arsenal teenager Fran Merida was quick to dismiss any suggestion Real Sociedad had got themselves the new Cesc Fabregas following his loan move to the Basque club.

Comparisons between Merida and Fabregas are inevitable, with both midfielders having been brought up through the youth ranks at Barcelona before moving to Arsenal as youngsters. However, 17-year-old Merida was keen to play down any similarities, pointing out Fabregas was now established as one of Arsenal´s leading stars.

"Many people have mentioned it to me, but Cesc is 20 years old and has played in a Champions League final and a World Cup," said Merida. "I am Fran Merida and I come here with a lot of ambition, right now there is nothing to compare between the two of us."
