LONDON (AP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has signed a three-year deal with the Premier League club, keeping him at the Emirates Stadium until 2017.

The new deal was announced by Arsenal on Friday and will take Wenger into his 21st year at the club, where he has been in charge since 1996.

The 64-year-old Frenchman won three Premier League titles and four FA Cups in the first half of his Arsenal tenure, but failed to capture a trophy in nine years until winning this season's FA Cup.

Wenger has guided the London side into the Champions League for 17 consecutive seasons and is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League.
