Aaron Ramsdale has announced he has signed a new four-year contract with Arsenal to keep him at the Emirates.

The England goalkeeper has been in fine form for Mikel Arteta’s Gunners, and has been rewarded with a new deal that comes with an additional year’s option.

It’s also thought to have doubled the 24-year-old’s wages from the previous £60,000-a-week deal that he was on.

Ramsdale has become a firm fan favourite, winning over Arsenal supporters since arriving from Sheffield United in 2021 following a £24m move.

Following Arsenal’s win over Newcastle earlier this month, Arteta told reporters: ‘It has been a big jump for him, from where he was, to play at a club like Arsenal and with the standards that are required, but he has really improved in every aspect.

‘I am really pleased with him.’

Ramsdale’s fellow England international Bukayo Saka is also set for a new deal, which is due to be announced in the coming weeks.

Arsenal are also pushing to tie down an extension for France centre back William Saliba, who has been pivotal to their strong defensive displays, particularly in the first half of the season.

Ramsdale has made 70 appearances for Arsenal since joining the club, and his efforts in turning them into one of England’s best sides have been rewarded.

Ramsdale made his senior England appearance in 2021 during a qualifier against San Marino, and gained an additional two caps the following year.

Arsenal need a result from Saturday’s trip to Nottingham Forest to force Manchester City to earn the Premier League trophy with their own game on Sunday.

Ramsdale’s Gunners complete their season with a home game against Wolves.
