Arsenal midfield target Adrien Rabiot has made a shock U-turn on his future and signed a new long-term contract with Paris Saint Germain.

The 19-year-old starlet had been expected to leave Parc de Princes at the end of the 2014/15 season when his old deal would have expired after a long-term stand-off between the club and player.

PSG manager Laurent Blanc admitted in August the youngster was likely to leave while Roma appeared to have had a deal in place to bring him to Serie A, only for the move to break down at the last minute despite Rabiot claiming he had made the decision to wear the Giallorossi shirt.

Arsenal have remained heavily linked with a move for the France Under-21 international amid the uncertainty, but Rabiot has now committed his long term future to the Ligue 1 champions, signing a contract at the club until 2019.

"I am very happy to remain a player of Paris Saint-Germain, the club that made me the player I am today," the 19-year-old told PSG's official website.

"I would like to thank the president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi], who kept discussions open in recent months.

"It was here at Paris Saint-Germain that I grew up and enjoyed my first experiences as a player. The club's project is ambitious, and I'm very proud to be a part of it for the coming years.

"Now I want to concentrate on my football, on my game and give my best for Paris Saint-Germain on the pitch and for the supporters."

Rabiot, a product of PSG's youth system, has not played for Blanc's side this term, having been restricted to appearances for the reserves due to doubts over his future and fitness problems.

However, Al-Khelaifi has assured the midfielder his decision to commit his future to the club will see him involved in the first team for years to come.

"Adrien grew up here with us and I'm covinced we will live some great footballing experiences in the future.

"It was very important for the club that a young French player, with the talent that Adrien possesses, remained a part of the PSG family."
