Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Thomas Vermaelen has signed a new long-term contract with the Club.

The Belgium international has been a star performer in Arsenal’s defence during his 54 appearances for the Club and has now put pen to paper on a new contract.

Vermaelen, 25, made more appearances than any other Gunners player during his debut season, being named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Season for 2009/10. During that campaign, his defensive performances were just part of the story. He also weighed in with eight goals, including thunderous long-range efforts against Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic.

Captain of the Belgium national side Vermaelen has made 32 appearances for his country including the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Vermaelen previously skippered Dutch giants Ajax, where he spent nine years, having joined as a teenager from Belgian club Germinal Beerschot.

Arsène Wenger said: “We are absolutely delighted that Thomas has signed a new long-term contract. Our plan is always to sign top quality players and with Thomas extending his contract, we have done just that. Thomas is a special player, who has always made a huge contribution on the pitch and we are looking forward to him being a part of our future at Arsenal Football Club.”

Vermaelen, who is now closing in on a return to full fitness said: “I am really happy to have signed a new contract with Arsenal. I always had the intention to stay here. I feel there is a big belief in me from the Club, from the boss and from the fans and that is one of the reasons why I stayed. Arsenal is a fantastic Club. We have great supporters, we’re doing well financially and we are playing with some quality young players now and they will develop, which is very good for the future.”

Everyone at Arsenal Football Club is looking forward to Thomas’ continued contribution in the forthcoming years.

This show commitment and will make others stay at the club long term. All we need is to get 1 or 2 quality players in the January window and we are set.

Vermaelen - This club has a bright future
Thomas Vermaelen signed a new deal at Arsenal because he believes the Club has a bright future.

The vice-captain has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top defenders since arriving in north London in 2009 and has committed himself to the Arsenal cause by putting pen to paper on a contract extension.

Vermaelen cited the belief shown in him by Arsène Wenger and the supporters as a major factor in his decision. And the Belgian wants to repay that faith when he returns to action in the near future.

"I feel there is a big belief from the Club, from the boss and from the fans and that is one of the reasons why I stayed," he told Arsenal Player.

"I feel great here, it's a fantastic Club and that is why I want to stay here. I played my first year here, had a big injury last year and then got injured again. I want to show something back to the Club and to the fans and that is why I want to stay longer.

"Of course you cannot look into the future but I have a big belief that this Club will continue doing well. We had a bad start in the league but I think if we fight hard we will get through this. In the following years Arsenal will stay a big Club.

"You can feel that [there is a strong base here]. You hear from the board that the Club is doing well financially. We are playing with young players now and they can develop - that is good for the future I think."

I just hope this opens the door for the rest of them. RVP, Theo, Song.

Excelent! Glad to see the club negotiating contracts as they should be and not waiting until the season ends.

Now there are still a few left, but great news.

YES! We signed a great defender we love, and this will probably influence RVP and the others to resign too.

Why? Cuz we're awesome, he's class and he's not stupid.

Probably was offered some nice money, too, since he deserves it.

I'd actually love to know how much he's earning. If Mertesacker is supposedly on 90k, he should be at around that much which is a lot for a defender.

Seriously, watch the interview, what a straight forward man. Not this

"oh well i dunno about the future, im no fortune teller, who knows what the future holds, im not sure about the future." crap

Just say "I intend to not screw around and thus will extend my contract/not extend my contract."

RVP will only sign, once the following happens:

-Arsenal finish in the top 4
-Arsenal sign a worldclass player or 2
-Arsenal rightfully pay RVP in excess of £135k a week.

If for some bizarre reason, RVP signs before the aforementioned, then maybe.... Just maybe, there is true players still in existence.
