Katie McCabe says she "couldn't be happier" after signing a new long-term contract at Arsenal.

The news was confirmed on Tuesday morning with the Republic of Ireland captain telling Arsenal.com: "I’m absolutely delighted, I love this club and I feel like we’re in a really good place and that we’re ready to push on now.

"I’m delighted to get it done and now I’m ready to kick on and help this club win more trophies.

"It's been amazing ever since I came over from Ireland, it’s been such a massive part of my life. 

"There’s been ups and downs along the way, but I feel like I’m in a really good place now with the team that we’ve got, the players we’ve got and all the staff we have behind the scenes. I’m really, really happy to be here and to commit my future."
