Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Theo Walcott will remain an Arsenal player at the end of the transfer window.

Walcott is refusing to sign a new contract with his existing deal set to expire next summer and has been linked with a transfer to Liverpool and Manchester City. But Wenger insisted the 23-year-old England winger will stay at Emirates Stadium and is confident he will sign a new contract.

"The situation is simple, Theo will stay with us and play with us," he said.
