Wenger agrees new Arsenal deal

Arsene Wenger has agreed a new three-year contract with Arsenal, BBC Sport has reported.

The manager’s previous deal was due to expire this summer and the new contract will tie him down to the Gunners until 2017.

Wenger was appointed in September 1996 and is the longest-serving manager in English football.

Arsenal this season won the FA Cup, their first trophy since 2005, and finished fourth in the Premier League to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Hull City were the beaten cup finalists, Arsenal winning 3-2 having gone two-goals down to Steve Bruce’s side.

It was the eighth major trophy Wenger has claimed in his time in North London, while they have been in the Champions League in each of the last 17 seasons. Arsenal reached the final in 2006, where they were beaten by Barcelona.

Wenger worked in Japan at Grampus Eight before moving to Arsenal and had a spell in charge of Monaco prior to taking his post in Asia.

He marked his 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal last season, the landmark soured by a 6-0 defeat to Chelsea.
