Jack Wilshere says he is sure a resolution to contract talks with Arsenal will be found.
Arsene Wenger had revealed negotiations over a new deal were dependent on Wilshere settling on financial terms.
The midfielder's current contract is due to expire in the summer but he has expressed his desire to remain at the club.
Responding to Wenger's latest remarks, Wilshere told Sky Sports: "I spoke to the boss and he said he will speak to me. We'll see when he speaks to me and I'm sure it will get done."

Wilshere completed the full 90 minutes for the fourth consecutive Premier League game in Arsenal's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday.
The 25-year-old has re-established himself in Wenger's starting line-up after spending last season on loan at Bournemouth.
He furthered his case for regular first-team football with an assist for Alexis Sanchez's second goal of the game - which ultimately proved decisive.
Asked if he is back to his best, Wilshere said: "It's difficult to say. I was happy with my form last year, I'm probably better now.
"I feel better, fitter. I'm getting better each game.
"I'm enjoying my football, another game, another three points, I'm happy."
