LONDON (AP) — Midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla have signed new contracts with Arsenal.

The Premier League club did not reveal details of the deals but manager Arsene Wenger said on Tuesday that both internationals are "key players for us" and "have committed their futures to the club."

The 29-year-old Cazorla joined from Malaga in August 2012 and was voted Arsenal player of the season last term. Ramsey scored 13 goals in 27 matches this season before the Wales captain picked up a thigh injury in December.

Arsenal also announced that 17-year-old Gedion Zelalem signed his first professional contract at the London club.

The Gunners are attempting to win their first Premier League title since 2004. They are third in the standings, four points behind leader Chelsea with a match in hand.
