Arsène Wenger has confirmed that Emmanuel Eboue has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Club six years ago and, ahead of Saturday’s game at Birmingham, had made 202 first-team appearances.

“He extended his contract one or two months ago. It is a long-term deal,” confirmed the manager at his pre-match press conference on Friday.
