Australian international defender, Steph Catley, is extending her stay with Arsenal whom she joined in 2020.

Since her debut in the UWCL quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain, the 28-year-old has gone on to make 41 appearances for the Gunners.

Catley told www.arsenal.com: “It feels absolutely incredible. I’ve been here for two years now and I’ve made some incredible friendships and I feel right at home here. I’ve been through some tough times and some great times and I feel that I’m growing so much as a person and as a player. I’m just happy to call Arsenal home for another few years.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall said: “Steph is one of the best players in the world in her position, so it’s fantastic news that she has signed a new contract. She’s played an integral role this season for us, making big contributions in both defence and attack, so we’re very pleased that she will be staying with us for the coming years.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “We are delighted that Steph has agreed a new contract with us. Steph is in the prime of her career and has proven herself to be a key player for us since joining back in 2020. We look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the future.”
