Walcott upset over contract delays at Arsenal

Theo Walcott is upset with Arsenal over delays in opening new contract talks. The England star has just 18 months to run on his present contract, yet no definite offer has been made.

A source close to Walcott told the News of the World: "There is no doubt Theo is frustrated at the lack of action over a new deal.

"The club said talks would start in October because they wanted to see how Theo started the season.

"Theo accepted that because he has the utmost respect for Arsene Wenger. Most people would agree Theo was one of Arsenal's best players until he picked up his latest shoulder injury.

"He was doing well for both his club and country but still nothing happened on the contract front.

"The fact is, he feels as if he's being taken for granted at the moment, as if people simply expect him to sign a contract."
