Arsenal Women vice-captain Jordan Nobbs has put pen-to-paper on a new undisclosed deal at the club. 

A Dazzling Decade 

The flying midfielder has had recent injury troubles, spending nine months out of action with a knee injury, but was making a fine return to football.

Before the recent suspension of the league, Nobbs had bagged five goals and three assists from 14 WSL appearances. Her contribution of a goal or assist just over every other game has been invaluable to Arsenal's title bid this season, with the Gunners sitting four points behind leaders Manchester City with a game in hand. 

Nobbs has enjoyed a glittering decade since her move from Sunderland in 2010. She has been instrumental in the Gunners lifting three league titles, four FA Women's Cups and five Continental Cups during her time in red.

The 27-year-old has also enjoyed a fine international career, making 60 appearances for the Lionesses and scoring seven goals. 

Her knee injury meant Nobbs missed the 2018 World Cup, but England boss Phil Neville has been vocal about her quality.

In an interview with the FA in October 2019, the Lionesses boss stated that he ‘"Wants to make sure we’ve got Jordan Nobbs for the next ten years, not just the next six months.” 

Smiles All Round 

The England international described Arsenal as "my everything" in an interview with the club website after signing her new contract. She's optimistic about her future with the club saying "I've got Arsenal in my blood. I've got some great years ahead of me."

Arsenal head coach Joe Montemurro was delighted with Nobbs' decision, saying she "personifies what Arsenal means." 

"To have players staying here for pretty much their whole career is something that’s very, very special from a coaching perspective.”
