Bukayo Saka signs new four year deal with Arsenal


Bukayo Saka has signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal.

England international forward Saka has put pen to paper on a new four-year contract with the Gunners.

Mikel Arteta added: “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.”

Since joining the club as an eight-year-old, Bukayo has progressed from our academy into the first team, with this season once again underlining his status as one of the finest talents in the country thanks to another truly exceptional campaign.

The 21-year-old, who has featured in every single one of our Premier League matches over the past two seasons, has scored 14 goals in all competitions in 2022/23, including 11 assists, bettering his tally of 12 goals last season.

His superb development and consistent strong performances have resulted in him already making a total of 178 first-team appearances.

Sporting Director Edu said: “It has been so enjoyable to work with everyone to extend Bukayo’s contract. It is a very proud moment for us all at the club, to work hard with Bukayo and experience his great journey from our academy through to our first team.

"Bukayo has now developed into one of the best young players in the game and we’re looking forward to enjoying together this next stage of his career with us.”
