Theo Walcott: Has agreed a new three-and-a-half-year deal in principle

The England forward, who is in the final six months of his current contract, rejected a five-year offer worth £75,000 a week in August.

But the uncertainty over his future has now come to an end, with a deal agreed in principle following talks between the club and their top scorer's advisors on Thursday.

Manager Arsene Wenger said he hoped for a conclusion before Sunday's visit to Chelsea and, after a string of protracted transfer sagas involving his players, can finally celebrate a satisfying one.

Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas all left the club after months of speculation.

But Walcott has committed to the club that signed him from Southampton as a 16-year-old in 2006.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
