No Gunners panic over RVP deal

The Dutch international has been in brilliant form so far this

season, scoring 11 goals in 11 Premier League starts. His current

deal is due to expire in 18 months’ time and the 28-year-old admits

he is not thinking about discussions over an extension. But

Hill-Wood insists the Londoners have no concerns over their

skipper’s stance and will look at the matter at the end of the

season. “He doesn’t want to talk about it at the moment and we are

not troubling him,” Hill-Wood told the Daily Star. “I think we will

approach him near the end of the season. “But we obviously hope

that he will sign a new contract – I don’t see why he should not.

“I can’t believe he is unhappy with us.”
