Arsenal have awarded new contracts to ageing midfield ace Tomas Rosicky and towering centre-half Per Mertesacker.


“We are delighted that Mertesacker and Rosicky have committed their futures to the club,” Arsene Wenger told the club’s official website.

“They are players of exceptional quality and experience, and have consistently proven themselves at the highest level.

“There is a great feeling of togetherness and belief in the group and this news will only help to strengthen this further.”

Rosicky’s new deal will keep him at the club until 2016, when he will be 35-years-old, and while the length of Mertesacker’s extension has yet to be announced, the German is delighted he will be at the Emirates for the considerable future.

“And today I am deeply proud to have extended my contract with Arsenal. I’m proud to be a Gunner,” said the defender, who’s enjoying his best season since arriving at the club.
