Arsenal Women vice-captain Jordan Nobbs has signed a new contract with the club.
The England international has made 206 appearances to date, scoring 66 goals since joining from Sunderland in 2010, and during her time with the club, Nobbs has won the Barclays FA Women’s Super League title three times, the Women’s FA Cup four times, and the FA Continental Tyres League Cup five times.
There had been some speculation that she could be tempted with a move away from the club at the end of the season, as the money grows in the womens game, the big contract offers have been tempting top players to make moves, but that is not the case with Nobbs.
And she has opened up and admitted her delight at signing the new deal with the club: “Arsenal is my everything now,” Nobbs told the club’s official website.
“I think football has overtaken my life since the age of seven, but I think I’ve got Arsenal in my blood now and I’m very proud to say that. I think I’ve got some great years to come.”

Head coach Joe Montemurro said: “Putting football aside, she personifies what Arsenal means. To have players staying here for pretty much their whole career is something that’s very, very special from a coaching perspective.
“They’re unique situations in coaching and in forming groups to have players who are ingrained in the fabric of the club and we wish her all the best going forward. She’s an important part of our making as a squad.”
Great news for Arsenal and many fans will be delighted to see that she has once again committed her future to the club.
