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


The 18-year-old, who joined the north London club's academy at the age of seven, has been impressive this term, assisting 11 goals and is the first teenager to do so for the Gunners since midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas in the 2006/07 season.


Saka has made 34 first-team appearances since his debut in the Europa League competition in November 2018.


Speaking about Bukayo Saka's new contract, technical director Edu told the club's official website it was something everyone at the club wanted to happen


He said: “This is something everyone involved wanted to happen and we are delighted that Bukayo has signed a new long-term contract. He’s making great progress and is one of a number of young players who have developed through our academy. This is so important for us as we move forward as a club.”



Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta added: “Bukayo is a talented and intelligent young player. He has impressed me with his work ethic and attitude to learn and adapt, and it has paid off in his performances. I am excited to continue working with him to develop him further, and for him to help us achieve our goals.”


Saka expressed his delight on Twitter, saying 'continue living the dream'.
