Arsenal have announced that goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has put pen-to-paper on a new contract with the club.
Recent reports have linked the Poland international with a move to France, with Paris St Germain credited with an interest in his services.
But 24-year-old Fabianski has agreed fresh terms with the Gunners, committing himself on a new "long-term" deal.
The shot-stopper signed for the Gunners from Legia Warsaw in 2007 and has so far made eight Premier League starts, largely providing backup to first-choice keeper Manuel Almunia.
Fabianski endured a mixed campaign last season, including a fine performance against Liverpool at Anfield but a game of costly errors in the semi-finals of the FA Cup versus Chelsea.
Fabianski told the club's official website: "I'm very happy to sign my new contract with Arsenal, it's a big motivation for me to keep working hard and shows that the club believes in me.
"I'll be doing everything I can to repay that belief by helping Arsenal to win trophies in the coming years."
Wenger said: "I rate Lukasz highly and I am very pleased that he has committed his future to the club.
"I believe he is a top competitor, he's intelligent and reads the game very well and has all the ingredients to be successful in his position."
