Jack Wilshere is among five British players to sign new contracts at Arsenal. Full-backs Carl Jenkinson and Kieran Gibbs, midfielder Aaron Ramsey and attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all committed their future to the club.

“We are delighted that these five young players have all signed new long-term contracts. The plan is to build a team around a strong basis of young players, in order to get them to develop their talent at the Club. Jack is certainly the best known, the leader of this group - but the other four players are exceptional footballers, and we’re very happy that we could conclude their new deals at the same time.

Jenkinson, Ramsey, Wilshere, Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain ink their new deals

“Gibbs, Jenkinson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey and Wilshere represent a core of the squad and it’s an extension for a long period for all of them. I’m a strong believer in stability and I believe when you have a core of British players, it’s always easier to keep them together and that’s what we’ll try to achieve going forward.”
