Arsenal have triggered a clause in Bukayo Saka’s contract that will keep him at the club until 2024.
That’s according to a recent report from ESPN, who claims the Gunners are hopeful of extending the England international’s deal beyond 2024 but have activated a clause which will ensure they do not lose him before then.
Defender William Saliba is also believed to have had an extension in his contract triggered.
Saka, 21, has enjoyed a huge rise working under manager Mikel Arteta. Originally breaking through the Londoners’ youth ranks as a left-back, the talented 21-year-old has since found a home operating on the right side of the Gunners’ attack.
