Almunia delighted with new Arsenal contract

The Spanish goalkeeper has established himself as the Gunners' first choice this season after three years in the shadows.

He has now been rewarded for his form this season with a new long-term contract, although the exact length has not been disclosed.

With his future in North London secure, the 30-year-old outlined his intention to see out his playing days with the Gunners.

"I am very happy," Almunia told the club's official website.

"I have extended my contract and I hope to be here for a long, long time.

"I talked to my wife and I said I did not want to go back to Spain to play. Hopefully I can finish my career here.

"Football can change your life in one second. At the start of the season, I was not playing.

"But football changed my life again and now I am one of the happiest men around."
