Arsene Wenger has agreed terms over a new deal with Arsenal, it has been revealed. The Daily Star says the Frenchman has agreed to extend his stay at the north London club, which has entered its 18th year.

The big announcement is believed to be on hold because the Gunners want to tie up vice-captain Per Mertesacker, 29, and stalwart right-back Bacary Sagna to new contracts as well and then reveal the three signings as a package.
