Arsène Wenger admits there is "no news" to report on William Gallas' future at Arsenal.
The French centre back's current deal expires this summer and he was in talks over a new contract until Wenger put negotiations on hold at the end of last month to focus on a flurry of games at home and in Europe.
With Arsenal emerging from that period of fixture congestion, the manager was asked at his pre-match press conference about any developments over a potential new deal for Gallas.
"No, there is no news," replied Wenger.
"There's no impasse and no agreement."
