Published Add your comment

Jens Lehmann has reiterated his desire to remain at Arsenal but he does not believe he will be joined in the Barclays Premiership by Germany team-mate Michael Ballack.

Lehmann is out of contract at the end of the season and has reportedly been offered a one-year extension by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

The former Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper told PA Sport: "I have spoken to Wenger about my contract renewal. I am optimistic we can reach an agreement considering what I have done in recent seasons and this year."
