Arsenal They have confirmed that defender Rob Holding has extended his contract with the club.
Sustaining has been a mainstay in Arsenal’s bottom line under Mikel Arteta, with his mixed fortunes this season is not a fair reflection of his quality as a defender.
The 25-year-old is highly qualified in the Emirates, hence the club has rewarded him with a new contract, initially running until 2024, with the option of a one-year extension.

Arsenal fans will feel their club has work to do in the January transfer window, but half the problem for the club in recent seasons has been keeping its star players.
While Holding falls short in that group, for now, he’s an important player to have on the team nonetheless, and he seems central to Arteta’s plans for the future.
Talking to the club official website While announcing the news, manager Edu revealed the club’s thinking behind extending his contract:
“We are very happy to have signed with Rob on a new contract extension. He is 25 years old, so he is still at the peak of his career, and we are delighted that he is with us during these important years. Rob has shown great quality and maturity on and off the court in recent months and is developing well. We look forward to Rob continuing his progression in the years to come. “
