Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger signs new contract, along with Per Mertesacker & Bacary Sagna [Star]

Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League on Monday night, grinding out a 2-1 win at Aston Villa.

Tomorrow’s Daily Star are claiming manager Arsene Wenger has put pen to paper on a new contract.

The French long term manager has come under fire in the past 12 months, but has won the fans over with a scintillating first half of the season.

Wenger’s contract is due to run out in the summer, along with fellow Frenchman Bacary Sagna.

According to the Star, Arsenal will reveal that they have both signed new contracts, along with indispensable German centre back Per Mertesacker.

The North London club haven’t won a trophy in eight years, but certainly look like title challengers this season.
