Katie McCabe has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, while Jessica Samuelsson has joined Rosengard.

Republic of Ireland international Katie McCabe has made 58 appearances for Arsenal since joining in December 2015 from Irish side Shelbourne.

She has scored eight goals and contributed eleven assists across all competitions this season.

“We’re delighted that Katie has signed a new contract with us,” manager Joe Montemurro told

“She is a very versatile player, she is strong and creative, and her development throughout my time here has been very positive. I am looking forward to seeing her continue to grow and achieve with us.”

Samuelsson, a 27-year-old Swedish international, only appeared 10 times for the Gunners after signing from Linkopings in 2017.

The defender has returned to her native country to sign for Rosengard.
