Ljungberg signs new Arsenal deal
Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg
Arsenal's Freddie Ljungberg has signed an extension to his contract, which will keep him at the club until 2009.

The 28-year-old midfielder told the club website: "I have been at Arsenal nearly seven years now and am really happy to have signed a new contract.

"I'm looking forward to the new season, to winning more trophies and also to playing in our new stadium in 2006."

Ljungberg has scored 68 goals in 265 matches since he joined Arsenal from Halmstads for 3m in September 1998.

Ljungberg was the Gunners' outstanding player during the winter months last season but his campaign was hampered by injury and migraines.

Boss Arsene Wenger was keen to keep the Swede after seeing captain Patrick Vieira leave for Juventus earlier this month.
