Gallas A Gunner For Another Year

Gallas A Gunner For Another Year

Arsenal centre back, William Gallas says he won't be going anywhere this summer, but reveals there has been no extension talks as he enters the final year of his contract.

With the rumour mill now running at fill tilt, there was speculation that Gallas' former gaffer, Jose Mourinho was looking to take the veteran defender to Inter Milan, but as with all good Arsenal players, this rumour was quickly quashed.

Speaking with Sky Sports Gallas said, 'I am at Arsenal, my contract is still valid for a year, so I am an Arsenal player.'

'We have not talked about renewing the contract, but I am relaxed and looking forward to next season with Arsenal.'

"Charmless Man", No Distance Left to Run? Im really glad he is staying. Forget about the St Andrews incident and his autobiography, he is still the best defender at Arsenal(Hopefully Vermalen is better).

So now we can cross Melo & Benzema of our targets who of the other 147 players we have been linked to are we likely to get. p.s i also realise Benzema was never going to happen

Paul, I think you should know by now that I am a big fan of Gallas, so "Charmless Man" would not be the song, but the words "Woo Hoo" come to mind :D

We should be able to get one more really good season from Billy before he reaches the knacker yard. Vermaelen is still young and can only learn from training alongside Gallas, I doubt he will have played with a defender as good as that before now. I'm very glad he is staying, it would be difficult for Vermaelen to come in and asked to be top boy at the back straight away, a season with Billy G should bleed him in quite nicely.

I would be happy to offer him a 2 year extension on top.
