Tomas Rosicky will be offered a contract extension past the end of the season, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed.

The 33-year-old Czech playmaker has impressed in his preferred role, linking defence and attack.

“Tomas Rosicky will stay here at the end of the season. He is a marvellous player and contributes well to the team,” said the Arsenal boss.

“He is certainly a typical Arsenal player in the way that he is mobile, technically sound and team orientates, so he is a fantastic football player.”
