Arsenal have announced that manager Mikel Arteta have signed a new contracts at the north London club.

Arteta put pen to paper at the Emirates Stadium, a contract that runs until the end of the 2024/25 season.

“I’m excited, grateful and really, really happy today,” Arteta told the Arsenal website.

“When I spoke to Josh [Kroenke] he could see the club at the same point and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to do it. So everything that he’s said, and that Stan has said when I’ve been together with both of them, they’ve always delivered.”

Arteta joined the club in the winter of 2019 and led the club the FA Cup in 2020.

This season, the Gunners are in contention for Champions League qualification for the first time in five years, currently sitting fourth in the Premier League with four matches to play.

“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams,” Arteta added. “In order to do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League. 

“We have to be able to evolve the team, improve our players, improve all departments, generate even more connection with our fans, improve the atmosphere at the Emirates, be able to recruit top, top talent and the best people for this club to drive this project to that level.”
