Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey extend contracts with Arsenal
Johannesburg: Arsenal midfielders Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey have reportedly extended their contracts with the club.
The news is a well-timed boost for the north London club, whose Premier League title challenge was steered back on track with a 1-0 win over rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
According to Sport24, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed the fact, saying that the duo, along with 17-year-old prospect Gedion Zelalem had `committed their futures to the club`.
Wenger hailed the trio, saying that the both Cazorla and Ramsey are key for the club`s development, adding that although Gedion is very young, he has already shown that he has fantastic promise.
Spain international Cazorla has made himself an integral part of Arsenal`s midfield since joining from Malaga in August 2012 and was voted the club`s player of the season last year having featured more than any other player during the 2012/13 campaign.
The report also mentioned that Ramsey made a stunning start to the current season, scoring 13 goals in 27 appearances before suffering a thigh injury in December, while German youth international Zelalem made his first-team debut in January in Arsenal`s 4-0 victory over Coventry City in the FA Cup fourth round.
