Mesut Ozil satisfied with new Arsenal contract

Mesut Ozil says he's happy with his new contract at Arsenal.

Ozil agreed a three-and-a-half year extension worth up to £350,000-a-week last month, ending the long-running saga over his future only five months before his contract was due to expire.

“It feels really good," he told Arsenal Player. “I'm really happy to sign here for such a big club like Arsenal. I've always said to the club that I'm happy here and now I've signed, I'm really happy.

“My team-mates and family have always supported me. I have a lot of goals here with the team, I want to reach those and I'm really happy.

“I love the city. Before I signed the contract, I spoke with my family about what the best decision was for me. At the end of the day, it was really easy for me to say yes to the club. I'm here for more years and I hope we will win some titles with the team. I believe in that."
