Walcott contract talks ´ongoing´

29 December 2012 23:14

Arsenal striker Theo Walcott says 'something will be sorted soon' on his future at the north London club, with his contract set to expire.

The 23-year-old scored his second hat-trick of the season in Arsenal's exhilarating 7-3 victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

Walcott said talks were ongoing, but the England international will be permitted to speak to other clubs when the transfer window opens on January 1.

"I will continue to play my football," he told BBC Sport. "Talks are ongoing and I'm sure something will be sorted soon."

New York Red Bulls and former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has been training with the club and Walcott said he was learning from the Frenchman.

Henry is expected to rejoin Arsenal on loan in the January transfer window in a similar deal to the one that saw him sign during the MLS off-season last year.

"I have learned in the years when Henry has been here," Walcott told ESPN.

"But he has started training with us as well, so just to be around him other players are going to gain more and more experience.

"He's shown what qualities he has last season, so hopefully (a loan deal) can be sorted out and (we can) learn from the best."
