Arsene Wenger is not ready to commit his future to Arsenal, despite agreeing terms on a two-year contract extension, according to the Metro.
The 64-year-old Frenchman has yet to put pen-to-paper on the new deal - but he has assured supporters that they can rest easily in the meantime.
However, reports suggest that the veteran coach will sign the contract extension before Christmas.
"Why? Do you treat that as a present?" Wenger asked reporters in response. "The fans don’t need to question my commitment to this club. I just want do well and focus on that.
"I am relaxed about the situation."
Wenger's men currently sit top of the Premier League table, having secured nine victories from their opening 12 matches.
Arsenal are also on course to book their place in the Champions League knockout rounds after winning four out of their five opening group stage matches.
After such a promising start to the 2013/14 campaign, Wenger's popularity at the Emirates Stadium is higher than it has been for years, and fans are keen to see him extend his contract to 2016.
If he signs and completes the two years, he will have marked 20 years as Arsenal manager.
However, reports in October revealed that French champions Paris Saint-Germain remain keen to lure Wenger to the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.
Could this be behind Wenger's decision to delay signing his contract extension with the north London outfit?
