Arsenal Target Huntelaar Set To Snub Move To Gunners

20 December 2012 10:39

Arsenal target Klass-Jan Huntelaar is reportedly set to snub a move to Arsenal or Liverpool in January by signing a new contract with FC Schalke, according to metro.

The Holland striker is a top target for both the Gunners and the Reds, but German news agency Der Westen says Huntelaar has agreed to extend his stay with Schalke until 2016.

‘Huntelaar has decided to renew Schalke contract, details to be announced in the coming days,’ the paper tweeted.

Huntelaar’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season, and Schalke have twice had offers to extend it rejected by the player and his agent, although Schalke fans will be pleased with the recent news.

That had opened the door to significant interest from both Arsenal and Liverpool, but Der Westen claims Huntelaar has now agreed a new deal, and will put pen-to-paper in the next few days.
