Arsenal are set to announce five young players have been secured to new deals.

But Theo Walcott is not among them... yet.

Midfield ace Jack Wilshere leads the way, having agreed an £80,000-a-week, five-year deal, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson have also accepted terms, says The Sun.

Manager Arsene Wenger hopes the statement of intent by the quintet, particularly 20-year-old Wilshere’s decision to pledge his future to the club, will convince contract rebel Walcott that his future lies at the Emirates.
