Rosicky expected to finalise details of new contract 'within a fortnight'


Arsenal have been boosted with the news that midfielder Tomas Rosicky will extend his contract at the club in the next fortnight.

The Czech Republic captain’s current deal expires at the end of the campaign but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the midfielder will still be at the Emirates Stadium next season.

Rosicky, who joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in 2006, has agreed in principle to sign a two-year extension worth £60,000-a-week.

“Tomas will stay here at the end of the season”, said Wenger.

“He is a marvellous player and contributes well to the team.

“He is certainly a typical Arsenal player in the way that he is mobile, technically sound and team orientated. He is a fantastic footballer.”

Injuries have restricted the Prague-born maestro to just 92 Premier League starts in 8 seasons, but he is considered one of the most influential players at the club due to his vast experience and knowledge.

Wenger is likely to continue with Rosicky in midfield on Monday against Aston Villa where the Czech will make his 21st appearance of the season.
