Walcott turns to Twitter to reject rumours

Arsenal's Theo Walcott has taken to Twitter to reject reports of a fall-out with manager Arsene Wenger and has denied he has opened talks over a new contract with the north London club.

The 26-year-old England international is out of contract at the end of the 2015-16 season and speculation has already begun over his future.

Walcott in January 2013 signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, six months prior to the end of his existing agreement, ending talk of a departure from the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer.

He admits talks are still to begin on a new contract and after nine months out with a knee injury, he insisted focus is on performing for the Gunners as they bid to secure a place in the top four of the Premier League in these Twitter messages.
