Bukayo Saka: I leave Arsenal contract talks to my agent

Bukayo Saka is staying tightlipped on his contract situation at Arsenal.

The Gunners want to tie the 18-year-old to a lucrative new long-term contract to replace his current deal, which finishes next year.

But the winger prefers to do his talking on the pitch and said: “I leave all that contract stuff to my agent and my parents.

“I'm just enjoying my football playing under the new coach, so we'll see what happens."

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is not part of the negotiation process but sees Saka as key to his long-term plans.

He said: “Part of his development is to improve the contract and tie him to the club but I have to follow a natural process.

"I'm sure we will do the right thing when players deserve improved contracts."
