Santi Cazorla has signed a new deal with Arsenal with the midfielder’s new contract registered last month.

Although the club have not made any official announcement, the FA have released a bulletin detailing players who were registered in December.

Santi is there, dated 20 December 2016:

Quite why Arsenal have not announced the deal is anyone’s guess. They also signed Laurent Koscielny to a new deal one month before it was announced while Per Mertesacker’s deal was signed three weeks ago despite only being announced this week.

Cazorla’s deal is expected to be a one-year option, taking him until 2018 which will likely be the next time we see him playing.
