Blow for MLS as Arsenal star renews contract with the Gunners

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky is set to stay with the Gunners for another season, putting any hopes of a move to MLS in jeopardy.

The 34-year-old Czech Republic international has struggled to get into the Arsenal side on a consistent basis this term, making just 15 Premier League appearances. He has scored twice in the league with one assist this campaign.

He still had one year left on his Arsenal contract, but the club have reportedly moved to secure his services for another year by taking up an option to keep him at the Emirates until 2017.

Rosicky had previously been linked with an Arsenal exit as soon as this summer, with a move back to former club Sparta Prague linked as well as a switch to MLS.

Two Major League Soccer clubs were believed to be keeping tabs on the playmaker but they will have to look elsewhere now as the Gunners man could remain in the Premier League until he retires.

Should Tomas Rosicky have considered a move to MLS this summer? Or is he right in signing on with Arsenal for another year?
