Tomas Rosicky has signed a new deal with Arsenal and insisted he will fight hard to bring silverware to the Emirates.

The Czech Republic captain has been in fine form recently, scoring twice in three games, against Tottenham and AC Milan, and has been rewarded with what is believed to be a two-year deal.

He said: ‘It’s a great honour to sign a new deal with Arsenal, I love the club and am proud to wear the Arsenal shirt.

‘It’s felt like home since I arrived six years ago and I couldn’t be happier to commit my future to the team.

‘The manager, my team-mates, the staff and the supporters – everyone plays their part in making this a great Club, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.

‘I believe we have a really talented group of players and, together with the manager, the future looks bright.

‘It’s always been my goal to win trophies here at Arsenal, and I will fight hard to achieve my dreams here.’

Rosicky signed for Arsenal in May 2006, from Borussia Dortmund, appearing in 156 games since then, and scoring 19 goals.

His contract was set to expire in the summer but manager Arsene Wenger has seen enough to know Rosicky will have something to offer in the future.

He said: ‘I’ve always been a big admirer of Tomas’ abilities and am delighted he’s chosen to commit his future to the club.

‘I believe he is an exceptional player, a natural footballer who is technically top class.

‘He plays the style of football we champion here and shares completely our philosophy.

‘He is always ready to work for the sake of the club, always willing to put the team first. I have huge respect for him.’

The midfielder was ruled out for 18 months with a rare tendon injury in 2008 and struggled for fitness upon his return, but he has been relatively injury free this season, allowing him to make 28 appearances for Wenger’s team.
