Arsene Wenger reveals that he is not interested in a move to Paris Saint-Germain, with early talks underway to extend his contract with the Gunners.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed today that he has held preliminary talks with the club over a new contract, while rubbishing rumours of a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Wenger's contract at the Emirates runs out next summer, leading to speculation of a future move to PSG, despite their appointment of Laurent Blanc as boss on a two-year deal.

The Frenchman has insisted that there is no truth to rumours that he is planning for life away from North London, with his focus firmly on delivering a successful season for the Gunners.

He told reporters: "The link [with PSG] is because I'm French and I know the owners. But if that was the case, then I would be there already.

"My heart is with Arsenal. I am committed to staying longer at this club. We had already a chat with Ivan Gazidis. It went very well, not a problem.

"I am like everybody else of course, it is important to see how well we do. What I will always do in the future is not to use my longevity as an advantage to stay in this position if I don't do well."

The 63-year-old clarified his position at a press conference after landing in Indonesia ahead of Arsenal's pre-season tour of Asia.
