Gael Clichy has ended speculation surrounding his future by signing a new long-term contract with Arsenal.
Reports on Friday had suggested that Italian giants Roma and Juventus were keen on taking the full-back to Serie A.
However, those rumours have been scuppered by the news that the French international will remain at Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future.
Clichy, the youngest ever winner of a Premier League winners' medal when he helped the club to the title in 2004, has become a firm fixture on the left-hand side of the Arsenal defence and has comfortably filled the void left by Ashley Cole's departure to Chelsea two years ago.
He made the most appearances of any player at the club during the 2007/08 season, featuring in 49 of their 58 matches in all competitions.
Despite finishing the campaign empty-handed Clichy's fine performances were recognised by his fellow professionals and he was voted into the PFA Team of the Year.
Arsene Wenger will be delighted that one of his much sought-after youngsters has pledged his alliance to the club, while a statement released by the Gunners confirmed their pleasure at Friday's announcement.
"Everyone at the Club is looking forward to Gael's continued contribution in the forthcoming years," it read.
