King Kolo Signs New Deal

King Kolo Signs New Deal

In the past few months two of Arsenal's most important players have signed vital contract extensions, giving Arsene Wenger a world class core around which to build the next great team.

Thierry Henry & Cesc Fabregas are two of the three most important players for The Arsenal, with Kolo Toure being the third, and now Kolo has joined his freinds in making his stay in North London a very long one.

Arsenal.com have released a statement saying Toure has signed 'a new long term contract'. No details of the deal have been given out but I would hazzard a guess at a minimum of four years.

"I can see myself staying here [at Arsenal] for the rest of my career," said Toure. "Why would I want to leave. I love my football here, my family is settled here and the club is ambitious. It is fantastic."

Toure is one of the most under-rated defenders outside our fantastic club, and certainly amongst the top five in the world, having him, Cesc & Henry as the spine of our team will ensure long term success and the ability to lure some of the best players in the world to our club (not that we need anymore at the minute)

Long Live The King!

Definately a future captain in my eyes. King Kolo will be the rock in our defence for a long time yet!
