Johan Djourou has signed a new, long-term contract with Arsenal which will reportedly see him stay at the club until 2012.
The 21-year-old Switzerland international centre-back joined the Gunners from Etoile Carouge in 2003.
Born in the Ivory Coast but raised in Geneva, Djourou has made four appearances this season most recently coming off the bench to replace injured Gael Clichy in the win over Bolton on Saturday which sent the Gunners top of the Premier League.
He is set to come in for Kolo Toure tomorrow evening and claim a place in the Arsenal XI against Sheffield United – a match where Johan will be the most experienced defender on the pitch.
Djourou has made 51 appearances for the Gunners, including 3 in the 2006/07 season.
