Arsenal have agreed a deal with Jordan Nobbs that will see the talented midfielder extend her stay at the club.
Nobbs signed for Arsenal when she was 17 after Sunderland’s bid for FA WSL inclusion failed.
A full England international with over 50 caps, Nobbs has won the FA WSL twice, the FA Cup four times and the FA WSL Cup five times.
In 2016 she was voted England Player of the Year and she is one of the best midfielders in the country.
Speaking to Arsenal.com, Nobbs said, “It’s always been my dream club and the fact that I get to spend some more years here is the best feeling.
“It’s been a long journey and when I signed at the age of 17, I wanted to improve myself as a player and I wanted that challenge. I came in as a nobody in front of players like Katie Chapman, Kim Little and Jayne Ludlow.
“Obviously I had to work hard to get my shirt but it was the best thing for me and the biggest challenge. It’s definitely got me to where I am today and I’m very grateful for everything I’ve had at this club. It’s definitely helped me with playing for England as well.
“To be an England international and a regular at Arsenal takes a lot of hard work but everybody around me has been unbelievable. The club has been unbelievable and hopefully there’s still more to come from me. I just believe that I’ve progressed as a player here and that’s the main thing. I want to be one of the best midfielders around.”
Manager Joe Montemurro added, “We are all delighted that Jordan has chosen to secure her future with us. She’s an incredibly talented player and her work-rate is incomparable.
“This talent paired with her passion and commitment makes her a crucial part of our team both on and off the pitch. I’m excited to see how she develops further with us.”
