Rachel Yankey has agreed a new contract with Arsenal Ladies.

The vastly experienced midfielder has helped the Gunners to eight league titles, nine FA Cups and one UEFA Women’s Cup since making her debut for the club in 1996 aged 16.

She remains a key part of the Ladies squad, and appeared in nine of 14 WSL matches last season.

Awarded an OBE in 2014, Rachel has 129 caps for England Lionesses.

Everyone at the club looks forward to her continued contribution to the team in 2016.
