Noelle Maritz signs new Arsenal contract

Arsenal right-back Noelle Maritz has extended her contract with the club. The California born Swiss international joined the Gunners from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2020 and her initial deal expires this summer.

Maritz has been a mainstay at right-back for the club this season and her agency were in London last month to tie up the deal.

Maritz joins left-back Steph Catley in committing to the club in the last few days, with Vivianne Miedema reportedly set to follow them.

Noelle told Arsenal.com, “I’m really happy – it’s amazing,” said Noelle. “I think we have a really good group of girls and the staff is really good. I think everybody has the ambition to take it to the next level and the club is really pushing for it. Hopefully in the future we can make a big step in that direction.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall said: “I’m delighted that Noelle has signed a new contract here. She has a great deal of experience of competing at the highest level in Europe and has proven herself as a key player here with us. I know she can continue to make a big contribution and am looking forward to the future.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Noelle has been an important member of our squad ever since she joined us in 2020, so we are very pleased to announce that she has agreed a new contract here. We look forward to watching her in an Arsenal jersey for seasons to come.”

It leaves Caitlin Foord from the core team still to tie down, as her contract comes to an end this summer and Caitlin reportedly has an offer from former Gunners boss Joe Montemurro at Juventus. Lydia Williams, Jen Beattie, Simone Boye and Lisa Evans are also out of contract this summer and are expected to exit the club.

In order to overhaul Chelsea and keep the Manchester clubs at bay, we need need signings. Our current squad needs world class additions especially a goal scorer to make up for Viv when she eventually leaves

Fun Gunner
