Bukayo Saka has committed his long-term future to Arsenal by signing a new deal at the Emirates following a breakthrough season in North London.
Saka has been one of the Gunners’ stand-out performers this season, playing 33 times in all competitions.
Extending his deal has been a priority for boss Mikel Arteta, and he has spoken of his delight at securing the 18-year-old’s services for the future.
The Spaniard said: “Bukayo is a talented and intelligent young player. He has impressed me with his work ethic and attitude to learn and adapt, and it has paid off in his performances.
“I am excited to continue working with him to develop him further, and for him to help us achieve our goals.”
Saka made his debut in the Europa League in November 2018 and notched his first goal against Eintracht Frankfurt in September last year.
His 11 assists this season have seen him become the first Arsenal player to reach double figures in that department since Cesc Fabregas in 2006-07.
Technical director and former Gunners star Edu said: “This is something everyone involved wanted to happen and we are delighted that Bukayo has signed a new long-term contract.
“He’s making great progress and is one of a number of young players who have developed through our academy. This is so important for us as we move forward as a club.”
