Bergkamp agrees new deal
Dennis Bergkamp
Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp has signed a new one-year contract, extending his stay at the club until the end of next season.

Bergkamp, who turns 35 on Monday, told the club's website: "I am so pleased I will be at Arsenal for another year.

"Next season will be my 10th with the club, that just shows what Arsenal means to me and I hope I will be part of another successful campaign."

Manager Arsene Wenger said: "We are delighted Dennis is staying with us."

Wenger added: "He has once again showed throughout this year what an important part of our squad he is.

"Dennis is a great professional and I know his experience and natural ability will continue to help us greatly next season."

Bergkamp signed for Arsenal in 1995 from Inter Milan for 7.5m.

He has scored over 100 goals for the club and was a key performer in the double-winning side of 1997-98.

And Bergkamp has enjoyed a resurgence of form this year as Arsenal won the Premiership title.
