Szczesny commits future to Arsenal by signing new contract

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has committed his future to the club by finally signing a new contract with the Gunners, reports The Guardian.

The Polish stopper has been rumoured for weeks to be in talks to sign a deal to greatly increase his wages, which were believed to be set to exceed the £100k-per-week mark and make him one of the highest paid custodians in the world.

The north Londoners have not disclosed the length of the deal, which seems to have become something of a tradition at the Emirates, but the fact that Szczesny has overcome so many obstacles to establish himself as a first team regular indicates that it may well be of a long-term nature.

The 23-year-old revealed his delight at the deal when speaking to the official Arsenal website, saying: “I am very pleased to have signed a new contract. Arsenal is like my family and I’m so happy to be committing my long-term future here.

“I’ve been at this Club for over seven years now and I’d just like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support towards me during my time here.

“Many people have given me amazing support since I arrived as a boy, people like Tony Roberts, who helped my development as a player from a young age. I’m so proud to be an Arsenal player and am looking forward to helping our Club towards success in the years to come.”
