Rob Holding has signed a new contract at Arsenal, the club have confirmed.

The 22-year-old joined the Gunners from Bolton Wanderers in 2016 in a £2 million deal, and has since gone on to win the FA Cup and the Community Shield with the club.

Holding has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, even scoring in the 4-2 group stage win over BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

The club has not confirmed the exact length of Holding's contract extension, but he has signed a "long-term" deal.

Holding has played for England at various youth levels, and has won five caps for the Under-21 team, though he has yet to gain senior recognition.

The news ensures Holding will be at Arsenal next season regardless of who succeeds Arsene Wenger as manager.

The Frenchman is set to resign this summer, though he has suggested that the announcement was not "his decision".

Nevertheless, Holding is to continue providing support for the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi.
