Lionesses star Mead signs new contract with Arsenal

December 16, 2022


England’s Euro 2022-winning forward Beth Mead has signed a new contract with Arsenal, the Gunners have confirmed.

Mead was named Player of the Tournament after top scoring with six goals as Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses won the Women’s Euros on home soil earlier this year.

Mead is currently sidelined after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament in a Women’s Super League defeat to Manchester United last month and will spend an “extended period” out of action.

Having put pen to paper on her new deal – the length of which was not disclosed, Mead targeted a successful return in the coming months.

“I’m so happy to have signed a new deal with Arsenal,” she told the club’s website. “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.”
