Arsène Wenger has hinted that he will go public with his future plans within days.

The Arsenal manager's contract runs out in next summer and, over the past month, has been using the word "soon" when questioned about the timing of any announcement. It seems that "soon" has nearly arrived.

"You will have some news next week," he said. "At the moment I cannot tell you any more."

When asked about the nature of the news, he told journalists: "There is nowhere better in the world [than here] that is why you come [to talk to me] every week. But I will tell you more next week."
