LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed a three-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until 2017, the BBC reported on Friday.

The Frenchman is the current longest-serving manager in the English Premier League, having joined the north London side in 1996 and this season ended the Gunners' nine-year wait for a major trophy by overseeing their come-from-behind FA Cup final win against Hull City at Wembley.

The BBC added the contract extension for Wenger, 64, is "set to be signed and announced in the coming days", possibly as soon as Saturday.
