Arsenal boss Wenger: I will buy Gallas replacement

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he will buy a replacement for William Gallas if they cannot agree a new contract.

Wenger also says there is a deadline for Gallas to commit to a new deal.

He told "What is for sure if Gallas doesn't extend his contract we have to go out and strengthen this position.

"For the rest we will see.

"There is a cut off point for Gallas. It doesn't depend only on me. Gallas can come and say 'Boss we will stop the talks because I signed somewhere and that's it'.

"I could set a deadline for us and that will certainly be before the end of May because we then have to look for someone else. We have more talks planned.
