Arsenal duo set for new contracts

Both captain Martin Ødegaard and Ben White are set to commit their immediate futures at the club by signing new contracts at Arsenal.

Ødegaard was signed from Real Madrid initially on loan, before the deal was made permanent, and has realised the potential in a Gunners’ shirt that he showed when the Spanish club plucked him from Norwegian football when he was just 15 years old.

He still has almost two years left on his current deal, but both club and player want to extend that as   a matter of priority.

Arsenal paid Brighton £50 million for White in 2021, and, although he was signed initially as a centre-back, he has since developed into a highly effective right back, linking up on that side of the pitch with Ødegaard and Bukayo Saka.

There is no immediate urgency on White – he still is under contract until 2026. However, there is a recognition that his contribution to the team should be rewarded with improved terms.
