Adidas choose not to renew deal with Arsenal midfielder Ozil

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is set to see his endorsement contract with adidas not renewed.

BILD reports Ozil, who is the club's top earner on £350,000 a week, signed for the German sportswear giants back in 2013 when he was a Real Madrid player.

Ozil's seven-year deal was worth around £22million and saw him make a high-profile switch from Nike to their biggest rivals.

The company will not extend the deal for the 31-year-old.

Ozil, with next-to-no support from his peers, famously highlighted the mistreatment of the Chinese Uighurs earlier this season, which saw him lose some minor endorsement deals.
