Wenger set for Arsenal stay

Arsene Wenger looks set to end his career at Arsenal after revealing he is on the verge of signing an extended contract.

His current deal is set to expire at the end of this season, but according to the Frenchman a new one will be signed any day now.

At the age of 60 it seems likely this contract will take him to the end of his days as a club manager, although he has previously hinted he'd like to go into international football at some point.

Speaking about the prospect of signing, he explained that he wants to demonstrate his loyalty to the club and its players.

"I have to show how much I believe in this team by showing my commitment. My situation will be sorted out very soon," he said.

The news will delight the fans who have remained loyal to Wenger throughout the last five trophyless years and who still believe he can add to his tally of 11 tournament wins at Arsenal. For my money, they should be seen as Premier League best bets this season.

He also seemed to indicate he is happy to stay at the club until they decide they no longer want him, although he is not getting any younger.

Wenger arguably has his best shot at winning the Premier League title in quite some time this season, but it will not be an easy task as the best football predictions will tell you.

Manchester United and Chelsea are still strong, while many expect Manchester City to emerge as real contenders this season.

Still, if they can get off to a good start with all the injuries they have, then anything should be possible.
