Rosicky signs Gunners deal

Fit-again Czech commits long-term future to Arsenal

Rosicky: Happy to commit

Tomas Rosicky has signed a new contract with Arsenal having finally put a catalogue of injury problems behind him.

The talented 29-year-old midfielder joined Arsenal in May 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and while he has impressed when fit, he has often been beset by injury.

In his time at Emirates Stadium the talented Czech, who has won 69 caps for his country, has clocked up 76 appearances and scored 14 goals.

"I am so pleased to have signed a new contract with Arsenal," he told the club's official website.

"The last two seasons haven't been easy for me because of injuries but I feel it speaks volumes about the club's belief in me for this to be signed, and I truly believe I have a lot left to offer the club, my team-mates and all the supporters.


"It's felt like home since I arrived here four years ago and I believe we're on the verge of achieving something special together.

"I'm looking forward to the coming months and hope that together, we are all celebrating at the end of the season."

Manager Arsene Wenger added: "I have spoken many times of Tomas' class and contribution, not only on the pitch but off it as well, and I very much feel that this new contract reflects that.

"Tomas' vision and touch is remarkable and I know that we will all benefit from his input in the coming seasons.

"Tomas is a special talent and we're delighted that he has committed his future to Arsenal."
