Arsenal tied down Bukayo Saka to a long-term contract on Wednesday, ending speculation over the highly-rated teenager’s future.⁣

Saka, 18, has made a major impact in 33 appearances in a variety of positions this season and has been a regular since Mikel Arteta became Arsenal coach in December.⁣

“Bukayo is a talented and intelligent young player,” said Arteta.⁣

“He has impressed me with his work ethic and attitude to learn and adapt, and it has paid off in his performances.⁣

“I am excited to continue working with him to develop him further, and for him to help us achieve our goals.”⁣

Saka’s previous deal was due to expire next year, with Liverpool and Chelsea reportedly keen to take advantage of any breakdown in contract negotiations.⁣

However, Saka said he is happy to remain with the club he joined at the age of eight.⁣

“London is my home. Arsenal my team,” Saka posted on Twitter.⁣

“I’m so happy to finally announce my contract extension. I love playing for this club and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.⁣

“The hard work continues so I can continue living my dream.”⁣

Saka is expected to start as Arsenal look to jump up to seventh in the Premier League with a victory against bottom-of-the-table Norwich later on Wednesday.⁣
