Arsenal goalkeeper James Shea has signed a new contract at the club.

The 19-year-old, born in Islington, was part of the club’s FA Youth Cup and Premier Academy League ‘double’ winning team of 2008-9.

He is known for his superb shot stopping and has been called up into the first-team squad this season as cover for Wojciech Szczesny after injuries to Lukasz Fabianski and Manuel Almunia.

After impressing in the Arsenal reserves, Shea earned a surprise ‘call-up’ to the England Squad.

England manager, Fabio Capello, asked Shea to train with the seniors as they prepared for a Euro 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria at the North London’s club training ground.

The Gunners have not specified the length of Shea’s new deal.
