Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has agreed a new two-year contract with the English Premier League club, according to British press reports on Tuesday.
The Frenchman future was the subject of intense conjecture during the season, with a section of annoyed fans and pundits calling for the long-serving Wenger to leave.
A formal announcement from the Gunners confirming that the 67-year-old has decided to stay is familiar on Wednesday, the BBC reported.
An Arsenal spokeswoman told Reuters the Arsenal club was due to concern a statement on Wenger’s future, but did not say if the coach had put pen to paper on a fresh deal.
The former AS Monaco manager has been Arsenal coach for 21 years, winning three Premier league trophies and seven FA Cup titles, but the Gunners could only manage a fifth-place finish this season.
Arsenal will miss out on the advantageous UEFA Champions League next term for the first time since Wenger took charge in 1996.
They did end the season with hollowware, however, after beating English Premier League champions and favourites Chelsea on Saturday to give Wenger his record seventh FA Cup triumph.
