Arsenal Striker Emmanuel Adebayor completed a lengthy speculation about his future by confirming he will sign a new contract with the club Premier League.
Adebayor, 24, was the subject of interest from Barcelona and AC Milan throughout the close season, but he told the Arsenal website that wishes to enter its long-term future north Club London.
"Now I can say that everyone, yes, I will sign a contract. I feel very good here, very well here, and right now my heart is with Arsenal, "he said.
"I've never told anyone, I leave this club, ever. I am very happy that we found a solution.
"I have three years before on my contract so I am very happy to be part of this family."
The Togo striker joined Arsenal from Monaco in 2006 and enjoyed a production run in the 2007/08 season, scoring 30 goals in all competitions.
His appointment will delight fans of Arsenal after the departures of midfielders Mathieu Flamini and Aleksandr Hleb.
