Amid Goal's report he is set to put pen to paper on a new contract, the Germany international took to social media to drop a big hint to his plans

Mesut Ozil has got Arsenal fans excited on social media after teasing his followers about "signing things" amid news he has agreed a new contract.

Goal reported Wednesday the Germany international had finalised terms on a new long-term deal worth £350,000 a week, bringing months of speculation over his future to an end.

Although the Gunners have yet to announce the news, Ozil has dropped a huge hint over the deal with an image shared on his Twitter account.

The 29-year-old tweeted a photo of him autographing pictures, along with the caption: "Had a busy day signing things."

The post has been welcomed by Arsenal fans, who have already been buoyed by the club-record signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on transfer deadline day.

Ozil had been linked with Manchester United, who signed Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan this month, and had only six months remaining on his deal.

Arsene Wenger had previously dropped a hint that the former Werder Bremen man was ready to put pen to paper.

"Our intention is to keep Ozil at the club. Hopefully, we will manage to do that very soon," the Frenchman said last Friday. "The vibe I get from his commitment, focus and desire, he behaves like someone who is ready to commit. After that, contract negotiations are what they are."
