Theo Walcott celebrated his new Arsenal contract with a special Instagram post on Friday afternoon.

The England international has penned a contract extension with the FA Cup winners which ended months of speculation surrounding the forward.

Walcott, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months, scored in Arsenal’s 4-0 win against Aston Villa at Wembley in the FA Cup final in May.

The 26-year-old striker, who moved to the Gunners from Southampton in 2006, uploaded the above collage of headshots from his Arsenal career so far.

Walcott wrote on his Instagram page: “@arsenal since 2006 – photos by @stuart_photoafc”

Walcott has scored 76 goals in 302 appearances in all competitions for the north London side over the past nine years.

The England forward has been part of Arsene Wenger’s side that has won two FA Cup crowns in back-to-back seasons.
