After months of negotiations, the 26-year-old has agreed to terms that will see him extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium until June 2028. White’s pivotal role in Mikel Arteta’s defensive setup has been acknowledged with this new and improved deal, highlighting his significance within the squad.

White, who joined Arsenal from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer of 2021 in a transfer valued around £50 million, has consistently demonstrated his quality since his arrival.

With 121 appearances across all competitions, the Englishman has firmly established himself as a cornerstone of Arsenal’s back line.
