Mesut Ozil has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract extension with Arsenal to put an end to the uncertainties clouding his future at the club.
Ozil’s previous contract was due to expire at the end of this season with Arsenal running the risk of losing him on a free.
The Germany international announced the extension via his Twitter:
“Proud to announce: I signed dat thing….three more years with Arsenal!
“It’s been one of the most important decisions of my footballing career and that’s why I had to think hard and talk with everyone who’s important to me…good things take time!
“In the end I let my heart decide.
“As I always said, I feel at home here and I’m highly motivated to achieve big things in the next few years. Once a Gunner, always a Gunner!”
