Arsenal have confirmed midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
Smith Rowe has been linked with an exit from Arsenal as Aston Villa were keen to secure his services but had their two bids knocked back by the Gunners. The 20-year-old has also been given the No 10 shirt ahead of the 2021/22 season.
"As we all saw last season, Emile is an intelligent player with excellent ability," Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta told the club's official website.
"His sharpness on the turn and exceptional vision have already made him a key player for us. His attitude and willingness to learn have also been very impressive."
"I know the fans will join us in being delighted that Emile has committed his future to the club. We're now looking forward to helping him develop further and seeing him become even more important to the strong young team we're building."
