Listen to article

Arsene Wenger has agreed a new three-year deal to remain as Arsenal manager until 2017.

The contract could be signed and announced as soon as Saturday.

Wenger, 64, has led Arsenal to eight major trophies since joining them in September 1996.

This season he guided the Gunners to a 17th consecutive Champions League qualification and ended a nine-year wait for silverware with victory over Hull City in the FA Cup final.

The Frenchman, who moved to the club from Japanese outfit Grampus Eight, was in the final year of his current contract.

Arsenal had not lifted a major domestic trophy since 2005 prior to the recent FA Cup triumph, although they did reach the Champions League final in 2006.
