LONDON -- Arsenal says goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has signed a new "long-term" contract with the Premier League leaders.

The 23-year-old Poland international is back as first choice at Arsenal after losing his regular spot in the team on occasions over the last three seasons.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said in a statement released Saturday that "I have always believed he is an extremely talented player, with excellent reflexes and good mental strength. He continues to grow and improve all the time too, so he has the potential to be even better."

Szczesny joined Arsenal's academy from his hometown club Legia Warsaw in 2006.
