Aaron Ramsdale has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal.
The England goalkeeper has enjoyed a superb season for Mikel Arteta’s title-chasers, keeping 13 clean sheets in 36 matches.
“It’s a huge amount of pride, it’s something you work for,” Ramsdale told the club’s official website.
“It doesn’t matter if you’ve been at the club for a month or for four years, you always want to get the next one and push on with the team.
“To get it after two years, I’m buzzing. It just means I can concentrate and keep my head down, and hopefully after a few more years I’ll get another one and carry on living the dream at the football club.”
Manager Mikel Arteta said: “We’re all so happy that Aaron has signed a new contract. The way Aaron has developed over the past two years has been exceptional, with his performances, contribution and overall adaptation to the club.
“It’s great that we’re continuing to build our future with our biggest talents in our young squad. We’re all looking forward to enjoying many more years of Aaron the player and the person at the football club.”
Ramsdale began his pro career with Sheffield United, before joining AFC Bournemouth as an 18-year-old in 2017, where he made 37 Premier League appearances for the Cherries in 2019/20, having previously gained first-team experience on loan at Chesterfield in League Two and AFC Wimbledon in League One.
He returned to the Blades ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and was an ever-present in the Premier League that season, before moving to Arsenal.
