Walcott ends saga to sign new Gunners deal

England winger Theo Walcott ended months of speculation on Friday by agreeing a new long-term deal at Arsenal after convincing manager Arsene Wenger to play him in his preferred centre forward position.

The 23-year-old’s contract was up at the end of the season and Wenger had said he was worried he would leave after top names such as Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas quit the club in the last two years.

‘I am very happy to have signed a new contract here at Arsenal. Thanks to everyone for their continued support, especially the manager, everyone at the club and most importantly the fans,’ Walcott told the club website.  ‘I have made it clear from the start that I wanted to stay at Arsenal so I am pleased we have agreed a deal that everyone is happy with. What’s important now is for the team to realise its potential and win trophies.’
