Vermaelen said he hopes that manager Arsene Wenger stays as long as he can by signing a new contract with the club, according to the Daily Mail.

Vermaelen joined the squad in 1996 and the team has been having one of its best seasons in recent memory. Wenger has yet to sign a contract beyond the end of the current season.

Vermaelen has recovered from the calf injury he suffered in earlier this month and will be available for selection when Arsenal plays Stoke City on Saturday, the Gunners' official team website reports.

Vermaelen has played sparingly this season in light of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker combining to form one of the league's best pairings in central defense. However, with full-backs Kieran Gibbs (hamstring) and Nacho Monreal (foot) both doubts for Saturday, Vermaelen may be handed a starting birth at left-back. While that's a possibility, when considering the Belgian's time away, it wouldn't be surprising if Mathieu Flamini is ultimately preferred to fill the void in defense.

Vermaelen (calf) could return to full training this week after picking up a calf injury just as he returned from a knee injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Vermaelen continues to be a low contributor to Arsenal this season, and speculation continues about his future with the club. Being out with successive injuries doesn't help his cause, but his return will be good news for Arsenal's depth.

Vermaelen is expected to be out for the next two weeks after suffering a setback in his recovery from a knee injury, the Daily Mail reports.

Vermaelen hasn't been a big contributor this season, so his absence from the pitch likely won't affect many fantasy teams. If the two-week timetable holds, he should be fit again ahead of Arsenal's home match against Sunderland on February 22.
