Young midfielder Conor Henderson has signed a new contract extension with Arsenal Football Club.

The 19-year-old Republic of Ireland youth international’s precision passing and eye for goal helped Steve Bould’s Under-18s side retain the Premier Academy League title last season.

Henderson’s good form also saw him make seven appearances for the Reserves in 2009/2010 and also earned him a place in the first team squad for the Premier League trip to Wigan Athletic in April.

Everyone at the Club is looking forward to Conor's continued contribution and development with Arsenal.
