Out of Cup but Arsenal will hand Wenger new 2-year deal

Arsenal are ready to end doubts over manager Arsene Wenger by handing him a new two-year contract extension.The Sun says fans turned on the Gunners boss following Saturday's shock FA Cup KO by Blackburn at the Emirates.

But the under-fire Frenchman has hinted he wants to stay to reach two decades in the hotseat, ending all talk he will go when his deal runs out in June 2014.

Wenger's future has been in doubt after eight trophy-less seasons and last autumn he knocked back an informal approach from the club to arrange talks.

But there has been fresh impetus in the boardroom to keep hold of the manager and develop a team to take advantage of the new financial fair play rules, which start to bite in two seasons' time.
