Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny stated that he is excited by the prospect of playing for the club for a 'long, long time'.

The Polish stopper has been ever-present for the Gunners this season, helping them climb to third in the Premier League table following a poor start to the campaign that left them 13th after six games.

The 22-year-old, who surfaced as Arsene Wenger's first-choice keeper last season, has earned several plaudits for his consistent performances in 2011-12.

However, Szczesny insists that, while he appreciates the compliments, he is still developing as a player and is focused on giving his all for the club.

"It's always satisfying to hear people praising you," he said. "But I'm at the beginning of my career with a long way to go. I'm looking forward to playing for this Club for a long, long time.

"At this age, it's very important for a player to play regularly and I'm very happy that I was given the chance. I'm just trying to do my best for the club."

Szczesny joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw in 2006, and made his debut in September 2009 in the League Cup against West Brom, keeping a clean sheet in the match.

The Polish keeper has played 33 games for Arsenal in the league this season, conceding 41 goals and keeping 12 clean sheets.
