'Continued contribution'
The 22-year-old Song joined the Gunners from SC Bastia in July 2006 and  has carved out a regular place in the club's midfield over the last two seasons, also displaying valuable versatility by filling in at centre-back. A club statement said: "Everyone at Arsenal Football Club is looking forward to Alex's continued contribution in the forthcoming years." Eduardo and teenager Sanchez Watt have also signed new contracts over a profitable past week, which saw Arsenal confirm their place in the UEFA Champions League first knockout round with a 2-0 defeat of R. Standard de Liège on Tuesday.
