Steph Catley signs new Arsenal contract

Arsenal’s Australian left-back Steph Catley has signed a new contract with the club. Catley, who joined the club from Melbourne City in 2020, signed a new deal last summer but the club have been quick to extend her terms once more.

Catley made 32 appearances last season with four assists and a goal, straight from a corner away at Leicester City. Catley has made the left-back spot her own but also played at centre-half earlier in the season when Rafaelle and Leah Williamson were both injured. Steph is currently preparing to represent the Matildas in a World Cup on home soil this summer.

Catley told Arsenal.com, “It feels amazing – this feels like home. I’ve made some incredible friendships here and when the offer came around I knew exactly what I wanted to do and exactly where I wanted to be. I’ve never been happier playing football and I feel like this team is very special – we’re building something special and in the future we’re capable of achieving anything.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall said: “I’m delighted Steph has signed a new contract with us. Steph is one of the best defenders in the game and brings so much to this group both on and off the pitch. She’s a model professional and has delivered time and again when called upon throughout my time here, so we’re all pleased to say Steph will continue to be a part of Arsenal for years to come.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “It’s great news that Steph has signed a new deal here at Arsenal. Steph is one of the top players in the world in her position and has been such a consistent performer in the time she has been here. She is a key part of this team and we’re delighted to say she will continue to wear the Arsenal colours moving forward.”

Good to see these new contracts coming through now,
another Miedema extension would be great,

Superb! Another top class player committing to the project.
It can only send the right vibes to potential signings when the likes of City and Chelsea are losing their big names but Arsenal players are signing extensions well before their contracts are up.

Just a classy footballer. So glad she is extending her time with us.
