Wenger: Jens Lehmann deal close - but not signed

Arsene Wenger has confirmed German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is close to signing for Arsenal until the end of the season.

The Arsenal manager confirmed Lehmann would take a place on his substitutes bench for Saturday's match with West Brom.

Wenger said:
"Lehmann is training with us and will sign for the rest of the season.

"We have no cover in the Premier League, so that is why I decided to bring Jens back.
"He has not signed, but it [a contract] has been agreed."

The German, 41, comes into the Arsenal squad after injuries to Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone.
