    Arsenal are set to offer Spanish striker Jose Antonio Reyes a contract to keep him at the Gunners until 2010, according to the player's agent.
    Jesus Rodriguez de Moya dismissed speculation linking Reyes, 21, with a move back to Spain with Real Madrid.

    Moya told the Daily Star: "Despite everything that has been said Arsenal are happy with Jose and have shown it with this offer.

    "We've not talked about Real because we've never received an offer."

    Reyes has proved a big hit at Highbury since his £10.5m capture from Seville in January 2004.

    Speculation surrounding a return to Spain reached a height last February when he was caught out by a hoax telephone call from a Spanish radio station.

    Reyes admitted to somebody impersonating Real Madrid director of football Emilio Butragueno that he wanted to play for Real.

    Moya added: "Reyes will have the final word, but he is happy in London now."

    I dont know when reyes' contract runs out....but i think this is a good idea if he signs again. This way if he doesnt improve or produce the way he should, we can at least get some of the money back that we spent on him. But I hope he stays and does well for us.

    That was a very quick turn around from his being useless.

    I have to admit i am willing to forget what he has done. i was looking at what reyes CAN achieve and what reyes HAS achieved and he hasn't unleashed his full potential this season so things can get better.

    He has had his pitfalls, but there have been flashes of brilliance. He needs to get settled and more comfortable and I think he can become a star player.

    Which is fine, but you should really think about how valued your comments to the board will be if you drastically change your position every 40 minutes.

    Not trying to start a fight, just trying to help a newbie...
