Rosicky signs new Arsenal contract

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has signed a new contract with the club after scoring twice in the last three games, against Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan.

Rosicky, 31, joined Arsenal in May 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and has been an important player in the heart of the Gunners' midfield.

"It's a great honour to sign a new deal with Arsenal. I love the club and am proud to wear the Arsenal shirt," he told the club's website. "It's felt like home since I arrived six years ago and I couldn't be happier to commit my future to the team.

"The manager, my team-mates, the staff and the supporters - everyone plays their part in making this a great club, and I feel privileged to be a part of it. I believe we have a really talented group of players and, together with the manager, the future looks bright. It's always been my goal to win trophies here at Arsenal, and I will fight hard to achieve my dreams here."

Manager Arsene Wenger added: "I've always been a big admirer of Tomas' abilities and am delighted he's chosen to commit his future to the club. I believe he is an exceptional player, a natural footballer who is technically top class.

"He plays the style of football we champion here and shares completely our philosophy. He is always ready to work for the sake of the club, always willing to put the team first. I have huge respect for him."

Wenger is known not to give long-term deals to players over the age of 30, so while the length of the contract has not been revealed, it is believed to be only a one-year extension.
