Smith Rowe signs contract extension at Arsenal

The Gunners youngster has been the subject of intense interest from Aston Villa this summer.

The Midlands outfit have seen two bids rejected for Smith Rowe.

However, Smith Rowe has now put an end to the speculation.

He has committed his future to the club he has been with since he was 10 years old.

Smith Rowe has committed to Arsenal himself until 2026, signing a new five-year deal.

His previous deal still had two years to run and was due to expire in 2023.

But Arsenal were keen to secure his future this summer.

They rewarded him for his impressive performances last season.

The youngster was handed his full Premier League debut by Mikel Arteta on Boxing Day against Chelsea.

He made 33 senior appearances for Arsenal last season, scoring four goals. 

The playmaker also found the net as Arsenal started their pre-season campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Hibernian.

As well as signing a new deal, he has also been handed the No 10 shirt at Arsenal.

The 20-year-old wore No 32 last season after breaking through into the senior team.

But he has been rewarded for his performances by being given one of the most famous shirt numbers in Arsenal’s history.

The No 10 had been vacant since Mesut Ozil’s exit in January, when the German left for Fenerbahce.

Other players who have worn No 10 at Arsenal include Dennis Bergkamp, Robin van Persie, Paul Merton, Charlie Nicolas and Charlie George.
