Aaron Ramsdale sign contract extension to become third senior Arsenal player to sign a new contract this season, following in the footsteps of Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli.
The 25-year-old’s £24.3m move to the Emirates in 2021 attracted plenty of criticism at the time, but he has since established himself as one of Mikel Arteta‘s most reliable performers.
Ramsdale has 28 clean sheets to boast from 76 matches in an Arsenal shirt, recording 13 shut-outs in 36 Premier League games during the Gunners’ title charge this term.
Only David de Gea (16) and Alisson Becker (14) have kept more Premier League clean sheets this season, and he has earned plaudits for his distribution and athleticism during his time in North London.
Ramsdale was already under contract with Arsenal until 2025, but he is now understood to have signed a one-year extension to 2026, with the option of a further 12 months.
