Theo Walcott denies Arsene Wenger rift despite contract impasse

Fola Akintomide

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has denied reports of a disagreement with manager Arsene Wenger and that an impasse has been reached over a new contract.

The 26-year-old England international is out of contract at the end of the 2015-16 season and speculation has already begun over his future. Walcott in January 2013 signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, six months prior to the end of his existing agreement, ending talk of a departure from the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer.

He admits talks are still to begin on a new contract, but, after nine months out with a knee injury, his focus is on performing for the Gunners as they bid to secure a place in the top four of the Barclays Premier League.
