Arsène Wenger looks set to end his career with Arsenal after signing a new contract to stay in charge at the club until 2014.

The 60-year-old Frenchman is the Gunners' longest-serving manager and has led them to three Premier League titles and two FA Cup trophies since joining Arsenal from Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1996.

"My heart belongs to Arsenal and my desire is to see this team win silverware," Wenger told the club's official website.

"My commitment and drive are as strong and fresh as ever. Signing a new deal means that I can see this talented group of players reach their potential. Trust me, they are ready to deliver.

"With my staff and players we are in front of an exciting challenge and we are looking forward to achieving much success."

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood added: "We are thrilled that Arsène has signed an extension to his contract.

"He has masterfully transformed this football club over the last 14 years and the exciting and compelling football we play under his stewardship is admired the world over.

"Arsène is a very talented man and we believe the young, exciting team he has nurtured over the past five years will reward his and the fans' patience with silverware."
