Bender signed a new contract with Bayer Leverkusen that will keep him at the club until 2019, reports.

Bender has been linked to a number of clubs, most recently to Arsenal this past July. However, he has seemingly ended speculation about a move thanks to his new deal. The midfielder has one goal and no assists through seven Bundesliga matches this season.

Bender was the recent subject of a 18.5 million offer from Arsenal, the Guardian reports.

Bender, a 24-year-old defensive midfielder, totaled three goals and six assists in Bundesliga play last season, but Leverkusen insist he is not for sale, forcing Arsenal to look elsewhere to fill their midfield need.
