Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has signed a new long-term contract to stay at the club, according to Arsenal.com.

Koscielny has established an impressive partnership in the center of defence with Per Mertesacker, helping Arsenal to fourth place and Champions League qualification this term. Of his 31 Premier League games so far this season, 15 have ended in clean sheets.


He joined the Gunners in 2010 from Lorient for a reported fee of around £8.45m, and has gone on to make over 160 appearances in the red shirt since then. His new deal follows those of team-mates Santi Cazorla, Serge Gnabry, Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Wojciech Szczesny and Gedion Zelalem, all of whom have committed themselves to Arsene Wenger’s cause this season.


Wenger said of the deal: “Laurent has proven himself to be an outstanding player since joining us in 2010 and has showed his quality once again this season. I am delighted he has decided to commit his future to the Club.”


Koscielny, who has won 15 caps for his native France since making his debut in 2011, is also delighted to have penned the new deal. The 28-year-old said: “I am very proud to have reached agreement with the Club on a new contract. I have enjoyed four great years at Arsenal already, and I look forward to continuing to help the team in the years to come.”
