We are delighted to announce that Kim Little has signed a new contract with us.
Kim first joined Arsenal in 2008 and has since made 290 appearances for us over two spells in North London, scoring 164 goals in the process.
Our captain sits seventh in our all-time appearances charts and has played more times for Arsenal than any other member of our current squad.
Kim has won six league titles during her time with us, in addition to three FA Cups and five League Cups, most recently this season’s edition when she led us to a 3-1 win over Chelsea on 5 March.
Kim was awarded an MBE for services to football in the 2023 New Year Honours List, which was a proud moment for all connected to Arsenal Football Club.
“I’m delighted to sign a new contract at Arsenal,” said Kim. “Thinking back to when I first joined at the age of 17, I’m so proud of the progress that we have made together.
"Arsenal has been such an important part of my life and over time this club has become my home. It continues to be a privilege to represent Arsenal and I’m still so motivated to move this club forward and to be a part of its success.”
Head coach Jonas Eidevall added: “Kim is a world-class player and an exemplary professional. Her contribution here over many years has been outstanding and we are so pleased that she will continue to represent Arsenal for years to come.
"On and off the pitch, Kim is such an important part of what we are trying to achieve here at Arsenal Football Club so we are all delighted with this news.”
Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Few people are so universally respected in the way that Kim is in the world of football. She is a wonderful player and an outstanding person and we are so delighted to confirm that Kim will be staying at Arsenal.
"She has been one of the best players in the world for over a decade and her influence as captain of this football club is immense. We look forward to seeing her back on the pitch very soon.”
