Arsenal duo Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky have both committed their futures to the Premier League club by signing new contracts, BBC Sport has reported.

Tomas Rosicky

Central defender Mertesacker has been at the club since August 2011, and been a regular starter for much of his Arsenal career so far, striking a successful partnership with Laurent Koscielny. The 29-year-old, who has made 39 appearances in all competitions this season, would have been out of contract at the end of next season.

Midfielder Rosicky’s deal was set to run out in June, but he also has decided to extend his Arsenal stay, which has lasted since the summer of 2006. He is yet to win a trophy with the club, but he has made 209 appearances, scoring 24 goals.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger told the club’s official website: "They are players of exceptional quality and experience. They have consistently proven themselves at the highest level.

"There is a great feeling of togetherness and belief in the group and this news will only help to strengthen this further."

God you lot are pathetically shallow. Why do you have his obsession wth having to mention trophies every time you talk about Arsenal? We are not one of the richest three clubs in the country and do not have a right to win trophies so why the constant references? I trust that at the end of the season you will be talking about Juan Mata who "is yet to win a trophy with the club" or Soldado, who "is yet to win a trophy with the club" or Suarez who "is yet to win a trophy with the club". No I didn't think so. The media has become compeltl OCD about this ned to continually denegarte Arsenal at evry opporrtunity. Grow up and act like a real journalist i that's possible.
