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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
