Central defender Rogne, who is likely to face Dundee on Sunday, has rejected a previous offer of a new deal.

"We have made him an offer and it has been refused," Lennon said. "We may go back to him with another but there are no guarantees on that.

"Obviously we don't want it to fester on. We would like to get a result one way or the other.

"Thomas is a good player, we would like to keep him around and there is a good chance of him playing on Sunday.

"He has had to be patient because Efe Ambrose, Charlie Mulgrew and Kelvin Wilson have done exceptionally well, but whenever Thomas came in he has never let us down.

"And we intend to talk to Paddy and his representatives over the next couple of months."

Meanwhile, Lennon revealed Scott Brown will find out if he requires surgery on an abductor problem early next week.

"The specialist is coming back with his prognosis," he said. "He may need surgery but we won't know that until Monday, the specialist is on holiday at the minute.

"We are expecting the specialist to say he may need surgery. If that is the case we will get it done. He is a very important player, the captain, but the squad is strong."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
