Aaron Ramsdale has announced that he has signed a new four-year deal that will keep him at Emirates until 2027.
In addition to the contract extension, it was reported that the Arsenal hierarchy was ready to double the player’s salary. Ramsdale receives £60,000 per week after joining North London from Bournemouth.
The England shot stopper had been in fine form for Arsenal this season, and his excellent performances had gotten Arsenal to the point of challenging for the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League.
The news was announced via social media, with a two-minute video showing Ramsdale addressing the Arsenal fans.
He said, ‘How are we gunners? It’s been a while since we’ve done this. It’s crazy to think that it’s been two years since we last spoke like this. But let’s get it out of the way.
‘I know you guys probably weren’t the most overexcited for my signing, and I totally get it. I don’t have any right to come here and expect you all to rate me from the get-go.
‘This is a huge club, and it’s had some top-class goalkeepers along the way. But fair play, once I got on the team and got my chance, I felt like we understood each other a lot more. I feel your love, and I feel like you feel mine as well.’
Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta sounds happy about Ramsdale’s new deal. He said, “We’re all so happy that Aaron has signed a new contract.
“The way Aaron has developed over the past two years has been exceptional, with his performances, contributions, and overall adaptation to the club.”
Arsenal are also working hard to give William Saliba and Reiss Nelson new contracts before the end of the season. Also, the club are planning on announcing the signing of Bukayo Saka‘s new deal.
