Arsene Wenger has reportedly agreed a new two-year deal with Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has agreed a new two-year deal keeping him at Arsenal until 2019.
The Mirror claim the contract has been finalised and an announcement will be made tomorrow.
Further agreements regarding summer transfer plans and a reshuffle of Wenger's backroom staff are said to have taken place during today's board meeting.
The new contract is said to have been on the table long before last weekend's FA Cup final win over Chelsea.
However, the result has helped get many supporters back on side, providing the perfect platform to unveil Wenger's new deal.
