Rome (AFP) - Roma announced on Tuesday that they have agreed a deal with Arsenal to extend midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan's loan with the Serie A club until the end of the season.
There is also a "preliminary agreement" for the Armenian international to stay at the Stadio Olimpico for next season.
"I'm happy to stay here because I still have things that I haven't achieved yet that I want to achieve," said Mkhitaryan.
"I'm looking forward to it, I'm looking forward to finishing this restart of the season on a high note and then to be focused on what's next."
The 31-year-old former Manchester United player has scored six goals in 15 league appearances for Roma this term.
The capital club sit fifth in Serie A with 10 games remaining, but nine points adrift of Atalanta who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot.
