Theo Walcott takes to Twitter to address speculation surrounding bust-up with Wenger

Theo Walcott says rumours about his future at Arsenal are 'nonsense'.

Theo Walcott has addressed rumours about his future at Arsenal by taking to Twitter this morning, branding the speculation as 'nonsense'.

Walcott, 26, has been with Arsenal for over nine years now, having joined the Gunners from Southampton back in January 2006.

The pacey winger has hit 72 goals in 294 games for Arsenal, establishing himself as a key part of Arsene Wenger's squad.

However, recent speculation has suggested that the England international has had a big bust-up with manager Wenger, and that all is not well between the two.

Walcott recently returned after almost a year out of action following a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury, but the talk is all about his contract once again.

Walcott penned a new deal at the Emirates Stadium just two years ago, but will again be out of contract in just over a year's time, and his lack of first team football has some thinking that he could leave this summer.

However, Walcott has nipped the rumours in the bud straight away, using his Twitter account to say that the speculation is 'false' and that he isn't focusing on a new contract.
