Viktoria Schnaderbeck has signed a new contract with Arsenal Women.

The Austrian international joined from Bayern Munich in June 2018 and helped the Gunners win the Women’s Super League title in her debut season.

Schnaderbeck started 17 games in all competitions this past season, as Arsenal kept 12 clean sheets, including 10 in the WSL and five cup games.

And confirmation of her new deal is a boost for the Gunners defence ahead of their Champions League quarter-final in August, as Louise Quinn and Katrine Veje have left with Emma Mitchell set to follow.

“I’m really delighted to have Viki stay with us,” manager Joe Montemurro told

Schnaderbeck added: “I’m truly very happy to finally make it official. It just feels so right to stay with this club with the philosophy, with the staff and players, and it’s both the big picture and the small details that feel right to me.
