French international William Saliba has signed a new long term deal with Premier League side Arsenal.

The 22 year old made 33 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners last season and was part of France’s squad for the Qatar World Cup.

“To have William extend his contract with us was something we have wanted to do for a long time. William proved last season just how good and how important he is to our squad,” Mikel Arteta said, speaking to the club’s website.

"The ability he has at his young age of just 22 is exciting, and there is of course so much more room for development with any player at this stage of their career. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with William in the years to come.”

The defender joined Arsenal from Saint Etienne in 2019.
