England and Arsenal star Beth Mead signs deal

England and Arsenal star Beth Mead has signed a new contract with the Gunners.

The forward, who has scored 61 goals in 166 appearances for the club and 29 goals in 50 for her country, is currently nursing a serious knee injury sustained during Arsenal’s 3-2 loss at home to Manchester United.

Mead has scored three goals in the WSL and two in the Champions League for the Gunners this season, which follows her starring role in England’s triumph at the Euros during the summer.

She was named player of the tournament and claimed the Golden Boot with six goals, and last month was named Ballon d’Or runner-up.

Watch all of Beth Mead’s WSL goals from the start of the 2022-23 season as she continues her superb form following the Euros.

“I’m so happy to have signed a new deal with Arsenal,” said Mead. “This club is home for me – I’ve grown so much here as a player and a person and I know we can achieve so much more together in the years to come. I want to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game and I know that the ambitions at Arsenal match my own, so I can’t wait to get back onto the pitch and help to deliver the success our supporters deserve.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “It’s wonderful news that we have agreed a new deal with Beth. She is a world-class footballer and has proven that on the biggest stage of them all. I have so much admiration for the way she has handled success and adversity on and off the pitch over the past few years, and I’m sure she will approach the next few months with the positive attitude we all know Beth for.”

We were all so proud to watch her achieve her dreams in the summer and we are looking forward to welcoming her back to the pitch to pursue more success with Arsenal.”
