Ozil: 'It was easy to sign new deal'

Midfielder Mesut Ozil claims that it was "really easy" for him to commit his long-term future to Arsenal, despite months of speculation regarding a potential exit.

Midfielder Mesut Ozil has suggested that there was little doubt in his mind that he would eventually sign a new contract at Arsenal.

During the first half of the campaign, Ozil was frequently linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium with less than a year remaining on his deal.

However, in February, the German international committed his long-term future to the Gunners, and the playmaker says that he is confident of winning "some titles" with the North London outfit.

The 29-year-old told Arsenal Player: "At the end of the day, it was really easy for me to say 'yes' to the club. I'm here for more years and I hope we will win some titles with the team. I believe in that. I'm really happy to sign here for such a big club like Arsenal. I've always said to the club that I'm happy here and now I've signed, I'm really happy.

"My teammates and family have always supported me. I have a lot of goals here with the team, I want to reach those and I'm really happy. I love the city. Before I signed the contract, I spoke with my family about what the best decision was for me."

Ozil has contributed five goals and 10 assists from his 29 outings in all competitions this season.
