Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that Theo Walcott will stay at the club at least until the end of the season, reports Eurosport.
The England international has also made clear on a number of occassions that he would like to be played as a striker rather than wide.
But when asked at the weekend, Wenger replied ‘yes’ when asked if Walcott would stay to the end of season, before insisting that “we have until the end of December to sort this out.”
The news would appear to end widespread reports that the player could be moving in the January transfer window, however does not affect the possibility of Walcott signing a pre-contract agreement with another club, which would see him leave the Emirates club on a free at the end of the season.
Walcott has hit good goalscoring form for the Gunners in recent weeks, netting five goals in five appearances, including one at the weekend against north London rivals Tottenham.
