Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky has been rewarded for his impressive recent form for Arsenal with a new contract from the Premier League club.
Arsenal didn't reveal the length of the deal signed by the 31-year-old Rosicky, who joined the London club in 2006 from German side Borussia Dortmund.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the attacking midfielder "is an exceptional player, a natural footballer who is technically top class. He plays the style of football we champion here."
After a number of injury-plagued seasons, Rosicky has rediscovered his full fitness and been a regular in Arsenal's midfield in recent months, scoring twice in the last three games in strong performances against Tottenham, Liverpool and AC Milan.
