Arsène Wenger faced the media on Friday morning ahead of the Premier League clash with Stoke City.

Here's a round-up of some of the manager's quotes. For the main headlines, visit our Digest page:

on Nicklas Bendtner
It is still possible yes [that he will leave]. It is still possible for anyone else also, one or two other players could leave, yes.

on Alex Song…
The reason [we sold him] was we had the opportunity to sell him, he wanted to go and we had the players in place who can replace him. I have taken Song when nobody knew him, and I can show you some papers who said it was the worst buy I had ever made. He finished in Barcelona, so the Club has done a very good job for him. He has developed very well here. He had an opportunity to go to Barcelona, he wanted to take it. We agreed to let him go, but that was not linked with his attitude at all.

on Theo Walcott's future...
Negotiations continue, at the moment not directly with me, but we try to sort it out. We will try to sort it out one way or the other. We want to extend his contract, and to keep him at the Club - but you need not only our desire. His desire is also right, he wants to stay and we need to find an agreement. At the moment both parties are around the table.
