Arsène Wenger expects Jens Lehmann to be an Arsenal player next season.

The 37-year-old keeper's contract runs out in the summer and, as with every player over 30, Wenger has only put a one-year deal on the table. Negotiations are ongoing but the German No 1 could be staying.

"Yes, I expect him to be here," said Wenger. "But we have not gone into deeper discussions yet."
