Eddie Nketiah To Sign Long-Term Deal With Arsenal

May 26, 2022 2:48 PM

Eddie Nketiah will sign a long-term deal with Arsenal.

Nketiah had been expected to seek a new challenge upon the expiry of his current deal in June, with West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton among a number of clubs at home and abroad monitoring his situation.

Nketiah, however, became part of Mikel Arteta's starting XI toward the end of the season and played well.

With Alexandre Lacazette virtually certain to depart when his contract runs out next month, Nketiah and Folarin Balogun will be the only recognised central attackers on Arsenal’s books.

Bruno Fernandes has signed a contract extension until 2026 at Manchester United. The deal includes an option year to 2027.

Fernandes said: "From the moment that I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and our amazing fans. I grew up watching this team, dreaming of getting the chance to play here one day.

"That dream is now a reality and an honour.

"Even after two years, it still feels amazing to step out at Old Trafford, to hear the fans sing my song and to score in front of the Stretford End. It is a true privilege to wear this shirt and to fight for our incredible club.

"There is so much more that I want to achieve here, and I know that is the same for the rest of the squad and staff. More than anything, we want to give the fans the success that they deserve.

"We have shared some great moments over the last years, but the best is yet to come from myself and this team."
