Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard has signed a new long-term contract.
“Signing a new contract was a really easy decision for me for lots of reasons," midfielder Odegaard told the club's official website.
"Mainly what we are doing right now as a club is special, and I want to be a part of that. I’m really excited for what’s to come here. I’ve found a place where I can be really settled and call my home.
"My story is a bit different maybe, as I moved around different clubs since I was 16.
"At Arsenal, since the first day, I’ve felt great and this is definitely my home now. I just want to say thanks to everyone working at the club and of course, our fantastic supporters. I will continue to give everything to bring success to this club in the years to come.”
Odegaard initially joined Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid in January 2021, before signing permanently in August of that year.
The 24-year-old has since made 92 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, scoring 25 goals and assisting 13 more.
Odegaard was named club captain ahead of the 2022/23 season and was also voted the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for November and December 2022.
His first match following his new deal will be the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
