London - Arsenal winger Theo Walcott denied reports of a rift with manager Arsene Wenger on Thursday and said he's yet to discuss a new contract with the Premier League club.
The England international's deal expires after next season and Wenger said he expects a long process in reaching a new agreement.
The 26-year-old has made just three league starts since returning from a knee injury, leading to speculation about his future at the Emirates Stadium.
"I don't normally comment on false stories about myself but reports about contract demands and bust-ups with the boss are complete nonsense," Walcott wrote on Twitter.
"There have been no contract talks as yet and my current focus is not on contracts but on doing my best for Arsenal FC."
Wenger earlier this month said that Arsenal "had started early with him" on a new deal as Walcott was "very quick on the pitch, but off the pitch not always."
Walcott signed his current contract in January 2013, just six months before his previous one expired.
