The 56 year old Arsenal legend is set to convert his stables into a two bedroom annexe complete with king sized beds.

His impressive home already boasts eight bedrooms, a grand entrance hall, a study and cinema, not to mention a sprawling garden and cellar.

And that's just the inside. Tony shares his home with wife Poppy Teacher, a whisky heiress and five children. Tony is father to Amber and Oliver from his first marriage and shares three children with Poppy.

But his impressive home doesn't end there. Outside, Tony enjoysa swimming pool, a paddock, a tennis court and is set in five acres.
