Cesc Fabregas is fully committed to Arsenal but there are no new contract negotiations taking place just yet, according to Arsène Wenger.

Reports in the media have suggested that Fabregas, who has six years remaining on his current deal, is keen for an extension. However, the Gunners manager revealed that a new contract is not on the agenda, for now at least.

"We are not in negotiations at the moment," said Wenger. "What he [Fabregas] did want to say is that he is committed for a long-term future here.

"What we do is always deal with the negotiation at the end of the season and at the moment we are focused on the short-term. That means winning every game."

The Frenchman would of course be delighted if the midfield maestro stayed beyond his current deal. Wenger believes there is much more to come from Fabregas, who joined the Club at the age of 15.

"Of course we have good relations," said the manager. "I also believe that Cesc made a decision very young to come here. He loves the Club and the English competition because it is a very interesting one.

"You think because he is so good that he has nothing left to come out but he has an internal desire to improve.

"There is not a limit for him and every year he will improve tremendously."
