The Blues' longest-serving player has made 289 appearances since joining from Ipswich in 2003 and the new deal entitles the fans' favourite to a testimonial as reward for his loyalty.

The 29-year-old had suffered a frustrating season because of injury but he is targeting a pre-season return.

"Nine-and-a-half years is quite a big chunk of your life to spend at one club so I'm delighted to be offered the opportunity to extend that for another year," he told Chairboys Player.

"I'm proud and honoured to have been able to have spent 10 years at one place, it's a big deal and to have spent it here is an even bigger deal.

"Some of the names that have achieved that and had a testimonial here over the years are big names within the club's history and I'm really proud and honoured to go into my testimonial year.

"I've been in the gym nearly every day and I'm working as hard as I possibly can to get fit as soon as I can."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
