Arsenal's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny has renewed his contract with the English Premier League club.

In a statement on Tuesday, Arsenal said that Elneny signed a new deal to stay at the Emirates Stadium but the Gunners did not disclose the details of his contract.

"I love this club and I feel like part of this family," Elneny told Arsenal Media as he was delighted to prolong his contract.

"I want to continue at this amazing club and amazing family and I'm very happy and very excited for the future," he added.

The 29-year-old has been playing for Arsenal since 2016, when he left Switzerland's Basel.

Arsenal's first Egyptian player Elneny made 147 appearances to score five goals and produce 10 assists for the club, and he was an Arsenal member when the London team won the 2017 English FA Cup.

Elneny had a loan spell with Besiktas in the 2019-20 season.

Separately he had 93 international appearances for Egypt.
