Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Tomas Rosicky will stay at Arsenal for another year.
The 34-year-old is out of contract this summer and had been linked with a move to the MLS and former club Sparta Prague but has been persuaded to sign a new one-year-deal that will see him complete a decade at the Emirates.
The Czech signed for the Gunners in 2006 from German side Borussia Dortmund and has made 245 appearances scoring 28 goals.
He’s had to be patient this season, waiting until Boxing Day for his first Premier League start – scoring the winner in a 2-1 win against QPR. He went on to feature in 12 of the following 15 matches, notching two more goals. In recent weeks the cameos have dried up again although he did come off the bench against Sunderland on Wednesday.
In March, the player admitted that his lack of game time before Christmas had left him frustrated and that he’d given serious consideration to leaving in January.
Arseblog News welcomes news that the club’s only thrash metal fan will be sticking around. The question now is whether he’ll get himself a testimonial.
