Egyptian midfielder Mohammed al-Neny, 25, has signed a contract extension until 2022 with British football team Arsenal, the club announced on Tuesday.
Neny expressed his pleasure with the extension as Arsenal was reportedly considering to sell him to another club during the summer of 2017 and winter 2018 transfers.
Neny has participated in nine out of 30 Premier League matches. He was a key player in seven of the matches and a substitute player in two. He sat on the substitute bench in 11 matches and was excluded from the team list in 10.
Neny’s major appearances were in the FA cup and the UEFA Europe League, with a total of 26 matches played.
Neny scored one goal and assisted in another two with Arsenal in all competitions.
