Peter Hill-Wood says that the speculation linking Arsene Wenger with a move away from Arsenal is "nonsense".

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has labelled rumours that manager Arsene Wenger will leave the club as "nonsense".

The Frenchman, whose contract at the club expires in 2014, has been linked with a position at Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, with some reports claiming that he could end his 17-year stay in North London this summer.

However, Hill-Wood has hit back at the speculation, and insists that the 63-year-old is going nowhere.

"I think this is complete nonsense - in fact, I know it is complete nonsense," Hill-Wood told the Daily Star.

"That is news to me and I would certainly know if there was [a deal with another club]. He is happy as Larry and the whole thing is complete rubbish."

Wenger took charge of the club in 1996.
