Bukayo Saka:signs new long-term deal
Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka committed himself to the club by signing a new long-term contract.
Saka tweeted: “London is my home. Arsenal my team. I’m so happy to finally announce my contract extension. I love playing for this club and I’m looking forward to what the future holds. The hard work continues so I can continue living my dream.”
Saka has played 33 times in all competitions.
Mikel Arteta told the club website: “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 has impressed, predominantly in a wing-back role, since his Premier League debut at the age of 17 in the 4-1 win over Fulham last season.
Gunners technical director Edu added: “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.”
