After Kolasinac, Arsenal agree deal for another defender - contract to be signed this week


Arsenal defender Rob Holding will extend his contract with the Gunners and an announcement will be made this week, Mirror has revealed.

The youngster was a big question mark for Arsenal after signing from Bolton Wanderers for £2.1million.

But he impressed whenever deployed by manager Arsene Wenger including the FA Cup Final against Chelsea at Wembley.

After the match he said: "Last season, I was on the pitch at Derby after Bolton lost and we were relegated.

"Now I have won the FA Cup at Wembley. It is a crazy, crazy feeling."

The 21-year-old will sign a new contract that will see him earn £25,000 per week.

He will feature at this summer's 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship after he was selected for England's squad.
