Wenger to sign new deal, AGM and 'more to come' says Ramsey

Arsene Wenger Waves

All the morning news from The Emirates this Thursday.

Goal.com have an exclusive from The Emirates - Arsene Wenger has now agreed to sign a new contract with the club. The news comes via Wayne Veysey - who often has the inside scoop on matters at The Emirates.

He states that the Frenchman has agreed to sign a two-year extension with The Gunners, taking him into 2016.

He will not receive a pay rise although will hope to be backed in the transfer market once again.

He had been linked with a move back to his homeland, with Paris Saint-Germain interested, but it now appears he will remain a Gunner.

The Arsenal AGM is to get underway today at The Emirates Stadium, with, as usual, sparks expected to fly. This time they are again expected to be aimed at the owner Stan Kroenke.

Despite delivering on his promise to fund a big name signing in the shape of Mesut Ozil - he is still widely unpopular among fans after failing to meet with supporters groups - an issue that is likely to be addressed.

It will also be the first AGM headed by Sir Chips Keswick, in place of the now retired Peter Hill-wood.

Mesut Ozil appears to be winning his fitness battle for the game with Norwich City this weekend. He limped out of the game for Germany against Sweden on Tuesday night, and is said to be struggling with a bruised knee.

However the general consensus is that he will be fine to play.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who has been superb for both club and country this term, thinks he can actually do better:

"I think there is more to come, I'm still only 22, I still need to do better and learn a few more things but the boss (Arsene Wenger) is telling me about that, things like positioning defensively. So there's definitely more to come and I'm looking forward to that. When you haven't got the ball, while we're defending - sometimes I am not always where I need to be. I need to be playing well, be involved in the game and taking these games by the scruff of the neck and keep doing the things I've been doing."
