Keown: Wenger re-signing huge boost for Arsenal

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown says all Gunners can be happy that Arsene Wenger has agreed to sign a new contarct.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "Arsene Wenger's decision to sign a new deal is great news with everyone associated with Arsenal.

"I have to say there was some uncertainty over his future when vice-chairman David Dein left the club earlier this year. Dein brought Wenger to north London and I'm sure the Frenchman would have questioned the club over the former vice-chairman's departure.

"But now that he's committed he can continue to develop this young, capable team.

"He was great to be around when I was a player - he's calm, considered and very intelligent.

"Wenger treats all the players like adults, he always gets a good response from them and I don't think he actually fallen out with anybody who has been under his wings."
