Arsenal confirm player contract signing

An Arsenal player has signed a new contract on July 7.


Arsenal have confirmed that William Saliba has signed a new deal with the club.

Arsenal do not mention the length of the contract, but it is believed it will keep Saliba at the club until 2027.

On Saliba’s new deal, Sporting Director Edu said: “We are so happy to have signed a new deal with William Saliba. William is part of our vision to keep our talented young players, who will hopefully be successful with us for many years to come, so that we can grow and progress together. I know the supporters will be just as happy as we are to see William continue with us in the future.”

Mikel Arteta added: “To have William extend his contract with us was something we have wanted to do for a long time. William proved last season just how good and how important he is to our squad.

“The ability he has at his young age of just 22 is exciting, and there is of course so much more room for development with any player at this stage of their career. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with William in the years to come.”

Saliba joined Arsenal on a permanent deal from Saint-Etienne in July 2019. He went out on loan several times but only made his first-team debut for the Gunners in 2022/23.

The Frenchman was crucial to Arsenal’s early season success, with the north Londoners’ form taking a nose dive when he picked up an injury, which saw him miss the final 11 league games of the season.
