Arteta to be offered new Arsenal contract

Mikel Arteta will be offered a new contract by Arsenal in recognition of the excellent first season the Spanish midfielder had at the club following his move from Everton, the BBC has reported.

Arteta is said to have taken a pay cut to force through his move to the Emirates Stadium from Goodison Park, completed on the final day of the summer transfer window last season, and after impressing in north London has asked for his contract to be reviewed. The 30-year-old made 38 appearances for the Gunners last season scoring six goals.

Arteta, who missed Arsenal’s final four games of the season with an ankle ligament injury, first came to English football in January 2005, when David Moyes signed him on loan for Everton from Real Sociedad. The move was made permanent that summer and Arteta spent the next six years on Merseyside, going on to make nearly 200 appearances for the Toffees.
