Conor Henderson commits to Gunners

Ireland Under 21 international Conor Henderson has signed a new Arsenal contract to commit his long term future to the Gunners.

Henderson has yet to make the breakthrough into the first team at the Emirates Stadium but is rated extremely highly by club bosses.

The midfielder was a regular for the reserves last term and travelled with Arsene Wenger's senior squad for the pre-season trip to Germany, only to suffer a knee injury that has kept him sidelined for the past few months.

Henderson was handed his first professional contract with the gunners in 2008, with the left footed central midfield player instantly impressing the management with his ball skill and strength.
