Arsenal Ladies officially announced striker Vivianne Miedema has signed a new contract with the Gunners.

Just 22, Miedema has scored 152 goals in 172 games over the course of her short career.

Miedema joined Arsenal from Bayern Munich in May 2017, has scored 14 WSL goals this season and needs just one more to equal the record for goals in a single campaign.

Arsenal have not revealed the length of the ex-Bayern Munich player’s contract, but say it is a long-term deal.

Miedema, who has 52 goals in 65 games for her country, is the second player this week to sign a new deal at the WSL leaders after Lisa Evans.

“Vivianne is a fantastic striker, one of the best in the women’s game,” manager Joe Montemurro told the club website.

“She has a fantastic skill to find the back of the net in some of the most difficult positions, and her hunger to score and win is something that every team needs.”
