Arsenal Football Club has today announced that Henri Lansbury has signed a contract extension with the Club.

The 20-year-old midfielder, currently on loan with Championship side West Ham United, has reaffirmed his future to the Gunners after signing an extension to the contract he originally penned in December 2009.

The Enfield-born youngster featured twice for Arsenal this term before sealing a season-long move to Upton Park on transfer deadline day. Lansbury got off to a flying start with the Hammers at the weekend, netting on his debut as Sam Allardyce’s side defeated Portsmouth 4-3.

An England Under-21 international, he featured in this summer’s European Championships in Denmark and scored for the Three Lions in their recent 4-1 qualifying victory over Israel. He has also captained his country at Under-19 and Under-16 level.

Everyone at Arsenal looks forward to Henri’s continued contribution with the Club in the coming seasons.
