Aaron Ramsdale’s new long-term deal with Arsenal has been officially announced by the club.

The England international joined the Gunners from Sheffield United two years ago, and during his 76 appearances in all competitions for the north London club, he has developed into one of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers.

To conclude by the end of May, Ramsdale had been in discussions with Arsenal about extending his contract. The club has now revealed that the deal is complete.

Ramsdale, whose new Arsenal deal has an option for an additional year and runs until 2026, said: “It’s a big sense of pride, it’s something you fight for. No matter how long you’ve been a member of the club—a month or four years.”

“I’m excited to have it after waiting two years. It just means I can focus and maintain my calm. Hopefully, in a few more years, I’ll obtain a new contract and be able to continue living the dream at the club.”

“We’re all very thrilled that Aaron has signed a new deal,” manager Mikel Arteta said. “Aaron’s performances, contributions, and overall loyalty to the club have all been remarkable over the previous two years. It’s fantastic that we’re still laying the foundation for our future with our best players. We’re all looking forward to continuing to appreciate Aaron’s contributions as a player and a club member for a very long time.”

Upon his arrival, Ramsdale replaced Bernd Leno as the team’s starting goalkeeper. Ramsdale was a crucial component of Arsenal’s title-winning campaign this year, making spectacular saves frequently and amassing 13 Premier League clean sheets thus far.

Alongside budding talents in the making like Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli, he prospered quickly at Arsenal.
