Arsenal Captain Mikel Arteta to sign One-year extension at club as Wenger doesn't want to buy a defensive midfielder

Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta has finally ended doubt over his future by signing a new contract.
And the news means Arsene Wenger is ready to shelve plans to sign a new defensive midfielder this summer.
Arteta, 33, had agreed a new one-year deal months ago but a delay in the Spaniard actually signing the contract raised question marks about whether he would leave the Emirates this summer.

But Arteta, who could have returned to Spain, has committed himself and will lead the squad again next season.
He missed much of last season through injury and his return will provide Wenger with a boost going into the new season.
And it means the Gunners are no longer under major pressure to land a defensive midfielder.
Arsenal have dropped their interest in Morgan Schneiderlin, who set to join Manchester United, after baulking at his £25million valuation.
