Walcott tells Wenger he doesn't want to leave Arsenal

Theo Walcott has told Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger he doesn't want to leave. The Daily Mail says Wenger has bought Arsenal more time in their attempts to sign Theo Walcott to a new contract.

During a meeting at the club's training ground, Walcott told Wenger he does not want to leave and still views his long-term future at the club.

The 23-year-old also made it clear he wants a better contract than the five-year, £75,000-per-week deal currently on offer.

But both parties have decided Walcott will not be sold before Friday's transfer deadline - ending speculation over his immediate future.
