The England international is out of contract at the end of the season and manager Arsene Wenger hopes to keep him at the club.
“I am leaving it all to my agents and you will be the first to hear when something happens,” he said. “It’s important for me that something gets sorted out, because I enjoy playing for this club.
“I don’t think you can put a time frame on when it will be resolved though. When both parties are sure, it will happen when it happens.
“My last contract took six or seven months, so we have to be patient, myself as well. But I’m enjoying my football at the moment, so it’s not affecting me at all on the pitch.”
