It’s almost official: the BBC’s David Ornstein has confirmed that Mesut Ozil has signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with Arsenal.

A little over an hour after Arsenal announced the signing of Dortmund goal machine Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ornstein made Gooners even happier by confirming that Ozil has chosen to stay at the club.

Ornstein, who’s also known as the Ornacle because he only ever seems to report news he’s certain on, claims the playmaker will pick up £350k-per-week – the most any Arsenal player has ever been paid – and could be at the club until the age of 32.

If Twitter is anything to go by, Gooners are happier about this than signing Aubameyang!

Ozil signed for Arsenal in 2013 for a club record (at the time) of £42.5m.

Despite only having six months left on his current deal and therefore being able to talk with other clubs outside of the UK, the 29-year-old has chosen to pledge his future to the Gunners.
