Arsenal duo sign new long-term contracts

Thursday, September 3, 2009

Arsenal have confirmed that Nicklas Bendtner and Denílson have both signed new long-term contracts with the club.

Denmark striker Bendtner had been in the final year of his contract while Brazilian midfielder Denílson has blossomed in recent seasons.

The 21-year-old Denílson, who joined the Gunners from São Paulo in 2006, made 51 appearances in all competitions for Arsène Wenger's side last season, more than any other player in the Arsenal squad.

"My development since I joined back in 2006 has really pleased me, and I just want to build on last season's performances," Denílson told the club's official website.

"We have a hugely talented group of players here, and I am convinced that with everyone working together we'll be able to achieve great things.

"It's a special time to be part of this club and I'm delighted to have signed a new long-term deal."

While Bendtner scored 15 goals in 50 appearances last season and has become a first-team regular this term following Emmanuel Adebayor's departure to Manchester City.

He said: "It means a lot that I can commit my future to Arsenal because I have a great affection for this club.

"I've been here for five years now, and my development both on and off the pitch as a player and person is thanks to Arsène Wenger and the team here.

"We've got a group of players that is capable of achieving great success, and I am really excited to be a part of it."
