Arsenal’s Czech Republic international midfielder Tomas Rosicky has signed a new deal with the club.

The 29-year-old joined the Gunners in May 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and has made 76 appearances, scoring 14 goals.

He returned to action last summer after 18 months out with hamstring and knee injuries.

“I am so pleased to have signed a new contract. The last two seasons haven’t been easy for me because of injuries,” he said.

“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.”


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. He is a special talent and we’re delighted that he has committed his future to Arsenal.”

Rosicky becomes the 15th player to sign a new deal with the club since May 2009 following the likes of Abou Diaby, Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott and Eduardo.
