Arsenal Says Walcott Signs ‘Long-Term Contract’ to Stay at Club

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Arsenal said leading scorer Theo Walcott signed a long-term contract to remain at the English Premier League soccer club.

The 23-year-old forward joined the north London club in 2006, and has scored 56 times in 244 appearances, the team said today on its website. Sky Sports said the player signed a 3 1/2-year extension to the pact that was to run out at the end of this season.

Walcott has 14 goals from all competitions this season. Last month, England midfielder Jack Wilshere, forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, defenders Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson and Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey also signed extensions.

“Theo’s contract extension now gives us a strong nucleus of ambitious young players who have committed to the club and want to be successful with us as a group,” manager Arsene Wenger said today in the statement.
