Saka signs new ‘long-term’ Arsenal deal – sport

London: Bukayo Saka has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday.

The England forward played a key role in the club’s unsuccessful title push this season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions as well as providing 11 assists.

Saka, 21, joined Arsenal at the age of eight and has featured in all of the team’s Premier League matches over the past two seasons.

“Dreams don’t come true overnight,” Saka said in Arsenal’s announcement on their social media channels.

“It takes time. This club has been a family to me since I was eight years old. It has given me everything and I have given everything back.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta welcomed the new deal, which will reportedly keep Saka in north London until 2027.

“Retaining our best young talent is vital to our continued progress and Bukayo is an important part of our team now and for the future,” Arteta said.

“As well as being a brilliant talent, Bukayo is a special person, he is loved by all of us and he credits himself and his family for the hard work and commitment he has put in to reach the level he is today.”

Arsenal topped the Premier League table for most of the season, but faltered in the home stretch as Manchester City won their third consecutive title.
