Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal signs new long-term contract

Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

Arsenal confirmed the deal on Tuesday, with Monreal, 29, saying he was happy to commit his future to the team.

"I feel really good playing here," Monreal said on the club's official website. "I have a good relationship with my teammates and we keep improving year after year. I wanted to stay here and I could extend my contract. I would like to play here for many more years."

Arsenal did not disclose details of the contract, but sources told ESPN FC last week they were working on a three-year deal.

It was completed a month ahead of Monreal's 30th birthday, with Wenger usually reluctant to hand long-term contract extensions to players past that age.

The Spain international has emerged as Wenger's first-choice left back ahead of Kieran Gibbs in the last two seasons after joining Arsenal from Malaga in 2013.

Wenger said Monreal's experience and versatility has been vital to Arsenal this season, with the Gunners sitting top of the Premier League.

"He is a very important player at the club because he can play left-back and centre-back," Wenger said. "He has the consistency in his performances that is requested at the top level.

"Overall, his attitude has been absolutely fantastic on a daily basis since he arrived here. He's 100 percent committed and I think as well he has always improved since he has arrived and has shown that in many big games as well."
