News today in the Newcastle Journal that Newcastle are not interested in bringing Arsenal’s 18 year-old Jack Wilshere in for next season on a season-long loan deal.
Jack Wilshere – not coming to Tyneside
Jack had a very successful loan spell at Bolton this year, where he played 14 times with one goal for the Lancashire club.
And Bolton manager Owen Coyle has already said he’d love to have Jack back for a full season loan deal next season – and who can blame him?
But today Chris Hughton, the Newcastle manager, told the Newcastle Journal today:
“Jack is a very good young player at Arsenal and we are aware of that, but no he is not somebody I am looking at.”
“Everything is on-going at the moment, but we are still pressing ahead with things and we are still trying to plan for next season.”
We would have loved to see Jack playing at Newcastle next season, but from what Chris says, he will not be arriving on Tyneside anytime soon.
It would appear the two loan targets Newcastle are after are both from Manchester United – 19 year-old Danny Welbeck and 20 year old Tom Cleverley.
