Arsenal are understood to have handed Rob Holding a new long-term contract which will keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.

Holding’s current deal was due to expire in 2023, but the Gunners do not want to risk losing him after a run of impressive performances in recent weeks.

The Athletic report that Holding is seen as one of the leaders at the club, and is looking favourably upon by Arteta and technical director Edu.

The 25-year-old was reportedly close to joining Newcastle on loan in the summer, but is now a regular at centre-back alongside Gabriel.
