Official: Cap-tied England star of Nigerian descent signs new Arsenal deal 

With a statement on their official website, Premier League side Arsenal have confirmed that cap-tied England international of Nigerian descent Bukayo Saka has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract.


Saka has committed his future to his boyhood club, a year before his old contract was due to run out.


The winger signing a new deal has ended speculation over his future with reports previously linking him with possible moves to Manchester City and Liverpool.


Saka's contract extension will give Arsenal a big boost as they seek to build a competitive squad capable of challenging for honors next season, having finished second in the Premier League this term.


Since making his first team debut for the Gunners, the 21-year-old has registered 77 goal involvements in 178 matches.


Commenting on Saka's new deal, manager Mikel Arteta said: "It’s great for the club that Bukayo has extended his contract. 

"Retaining our best young talents is key to our continued progress and Bukayo represents such an important part of our squad now and for the future.

"As well as being a fantastic talent, Bukayo is a special person, he’s loved by us all and he is a credit to himself and his family for the hard work and commitment they have all made to get to this level today. 

"Together with our supporters, we’re so looking forward to enjoying Bukayo’s continued development with us in the years to come."


Saka is in the running for the Premier League Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season awards.
