Republic of Ireland international Louise Quinn has signed a new contract with Arsenal.

The 28-year-old is staying on with the Gunners after helping them to a first Women's Super League (WSL) title in seven years at the end of April, along with her Irish teammate Katie McCabe who signed a new long-term contract extension with Arsenal in March.

Arsenal sealed their league title win with a 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion, and officially lifted the WSL trophy on Saturday following a 1-0 win over Manchester City in their final game of the season.

Quinn was also instrumental for Arsenal when they won the 2017 FA WSL Continental Cup.

The Wicklow native first joined Arsenal earlier that year on a short-term deal after her former club Notts County had folded. She was handed a contract extension a few months later and has developed into an integral part of their defence.

Quinn has made 59 appearances for the Gunners since her arrival and her efforts have been rewarded with a contract extension. 

"It’s absolutely huge for me," said Quinn.

"Definitely number one is looking for that league title and putting those performances in on the pitch. Then to get a contract after is brilliant."

Arsenal coach Joe Montemurro previously voiced his praise of both McCabe and Quinn, and is pleased to be holding onto Quinn's services.

"We are very happy that Louise has signed a new contract with us.

"She has been an important part of our strong defence this season. The commitment and attitude that she transmits is very important within a strong defence."

Quinn became the fifth player to sign a contract extension with Arsenal.
