“No, we haven’t talked about anything related to his contract,” he told Sky Sports in response to a question on renewing contract talks with the striker.
“We will talk in the summer and make a decision on what is going to happen.
“I’m delighted with the way he’s performing, the goals he’s scoring and the form and energy he’s got at the moment, so he needs to keep doing that,” he added.
Naija News reports the 30-year-old striker has 18 months left in his current contract but has been instrumental in the recent turnaround in form for the Emirates outfit.
