Tomas Rosicky, having put his injury nightmare behind him, has signed a new deal at Arsenal.
The Czech Republic international midfielder returned to action last summer after 18 months out with knee and hamstring injuries. In putting pen to paper he becomes the 15th Gunners player to sign a new contract with the club since May 2009 following the likes of Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott.
Having joined Arsenal in May 2006 from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, Rosicky has played 76 times and scored 14 goals.
Speaking to the club web site, Rosicky said:
I am so pleased to have signed a new contract with Arsenal.
The last two seasons haven’t been easy for me because of injuries but I feel it speaks volumes about the club’s belief in me for this to be signed, and I truly believe I have a lot left to offer the club, my team-mates and all the supporters.
It’s felt like home since I arrived here four years ago and I believe we’re on the verge of achieving something special together.
I’m looking forward to the coming months and hope that together, we are all celebrating at the end of the season.
