Mohamed Elneny to remain at Arsenal until 2024

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has put pen to paper on a new deal which will see him remain at the club until the summer of 2024.

Elneny was due to become a free agent at the end of June but he will now remain under contract at Arsenal for a further 12 months at least.

The 30-year-old, who is Arsenal’s current longest-serving player, was pleased to have extended his stay in North London and remains keen to help his team succeed.

“I’m so happy, I love this club and our supporters so much and I’ll give everything to help us be the best we can be every day I’m here.” Elneny told the Gunners’ official website.

“It makes me so proud to have represented this amazing club since 2016.

“The spirit and togetherness we have in our squad right now is so positive and I’m so happy I have extended my contract.”

Due to a number of injury blows this term, Elneny has played just eight times across all competitions with half of them coming right from the off.

His last outing came back in January’s FA Cup victory over Oxford United where Elneny netted his first goal for club and country since 2021.

The Egyptian is unlikely to feature again this season after undergoing knee surgery last month and the decision to keep hold of him for another season will certainly split opinion amongst the Arsenal faithful.

As he continues his spells on the sidelines, Elneny will be cheering his team on to glory in their Premier League title pursuit as Arsenal sit two points clear of Manchester City with a game in hand.

Should Mikel Arteta’s men end their 19-year wait for a league title, Elneny will be eligible for a winners’ medal having already met the required threshold of five appearances.
