Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has signed a new eight-year contract with the London club.
The 19-year-old has now committed to Arsenal until 2014.
“I am so happy here and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” the Spanish international told the Arsenal club website.
“I wanted to pay back the club, especially Arsene Wenger for the support and faith he has shown in me.
“What is important now is for the team to realise its potential and win trophies. That is our main aim, that is my aim as well.”
Real Madrid had expressed an interest in signing the midfielder during the summer, but Fabregas made it clear he was happy to stay in London.
