On signing his new deal, Gareth said: “I’ve been here for five years now and I’ve enjoyed every minute. The fans have been great to me and I’d love to re-pay them and do the very best for them. The Club is progressing and I want to be a part of that, so it was great to get the deal done.
"I love the Club and the fans and I want to play my part in trying to get us back into the Champions League - where we belong. We’ve a good, young squad and we need to work together to get back on the biggest stage again."
The popular left-sided player's performances over recent seasons have attracted worldwide acclaim and have seen him named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year in the past two seasons as well as the UEFA Team of the Year last year.
A winner of the PFA Player of the Year award in 2011, Gareth has not looked back since establishing himself in the First Team at the start of 2010, making a key contribution not only to the Club securing Champions League football but also in the competition itself, notably with his performances against the trophy holders Inter Milan.
Signed from Southampton in the summer of 2007 at the age of 17, the Wales international has won the Club's Young Player of the Year award in two of the past three seasons and has made a total of 160 appearances in our colours so far, scoring 29 goals.
