Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor revealed Friday he has agreed to sign a new contract with the Gunners.

The 24-year-old Togo international joined Arsenal in January 2006 from Monaco and his performance last season attracted interest from Barcelona and AC Milan, but he has opted to stay with Arsene Wenger's team.

“Now I can tell everyone that, yes, I will sign a contract,” he told the club's website.

“I'm feeling very good here, very well here, and at the moment my heart is with Arsenal.

“I never told anyone I would be leaving this club, never ever. I'm very happy we've found a solution.

“I have three years left on my contract and I'm putting two or three years more, so I'm very happy being part of this family.”

Adebayor said his relationship with manager Wenger was a key to his desire to stay in London.

“When we started talking about my contract I never told him I'd be leaving this club and he knew my desire,” said Adebayor.

“My desire was to stay at this club so for me he's like my father, he's my boss so whatever he tells me I'll do it, so our relationship at the moment is always strong. “There is no doubt about that.”
