Song commits his future to Arsenal

Cameroonian international Alexandre Song signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal on Monday.

Song, who has won six caps for Cameroon, made only 15 appearances for Arsenal last season but could feature more prominently next term after agreeing the undisclosed deal.

Although the 20-year-old featured at centre-back in the final games of the season, his preferred position is central midfield and the departure of Mathieu Flamini to AC Milan could allow him to move back to that role.
