Tomas Rosicky has underlined his desire to end his long wait to win the Premier League title after signing a new Arsenal deal.

The 33-year-old midfielder has put pen to paper on a reported two-year deal which will see the Czech Republic international enjoy a ninth and tenth season at Emirates Stadium.

One big factor is that I want to win the league with Arsenal

The former Borussia Dortmund man has still managed to rack up 209 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions despite an injury-hit career at the north London side.

And the Czech, who joined Arsenal from Dortmund in 2006, revealed a big motivation behind his decision to sign a new deal was his underlying desire to win the Premier League crown.

Rosicky said: “I’m very happy that I’m staying at the club. I’m proud that I’m still here after a long time and that it still continues. I’m glad I’m here at Arsenal and we’re all trying our best to win trophies for the club and our supporters.”

“Ever since I arrived at Arsenal, I have always felt that I’m at the right place where I want to be,” Rosicky added in his interview with Arsenal’s website.

“I still feel this way now and I’m proud that after such a long time I’m still here and will continue.

“One big factor is that I want to win the league with Arsenal. It’s my big goal and I will do everything that I can to achieve it. Arsenal is a great club, we have a great spirit here and we are all working together to do the best we can.”

Rosicky won the Bundesiga title with Borussia Dortmund in 2002.
