Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal to stay at the club until 2021.
Ozil, 29, becomes the highest-paid player in the club’s history – earning about £350,000 a week before tax.
The deal, signed on Wednesday, follows months of speculation about the future of the Germany international, whose previous contract was due to expire at the end of the season.
He joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in 2013 for a then club record £42.4m.
Ozil could have left Arsenal as a free agent in the summer and had been able to discuss a move with foreign clubs since 1 January.
The playmaker has made 21 appearances this term, scoring four goals and recording six assists, and his new deal commits him to the Premier League club until he is 32.
