Arsène Wenger is expecting Jens Lehmann to sign a new deal with Arsenal.

The Club is in discussion with the German keeper at the moment about extending his three-year stay. A decision should be announced by the end of the month and the Arsenal manager believes there will be a positive outcome.

"I expect him to stay," said Wenger on Friday. "It's a bit optimistic to think he'd tell us that he wants to stay [with discussions ongoing] but I expect a decision before the end of April."
