Grant Xhaka has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
The 25-year-old midfielder featured in all 38 Premier League matches last season, starting 37 and making one appearance from the bench. He has made 94 appearances for us and won the Emirates FA Cup in his first season. He has 61 caps for Switzerland and is part of their squad for the World Cup.
Granit has sent a message to fans about his new deal which you can see on our Twitter account.
Granit joined us from German side Borussia Monchengladbach in May 2016 after helping them to fourth place in the Bundesliga in the 2015/16 season and two Champions League group-stage qualifications.
Head coach Unai Emery said: “I’m delighted that Granit has extended his contract with us. He’s an important member of the squad and is still young so will be able to develop even more. I hope he has a successful World Cup with Switzerland and comes back fit and ready for the new season.”
The contract renewal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
