A report today in the Daily Mirror that Arsene Wenger does not want to let Jack Wilshere go out on loan next season.
Jack Wilshere – will stay at Arsenal next season
It seems that Wenger thinks it’s time for Jack to make an impact in the Arsenal side next season, at just 18 years old.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle took the promising midfield prospect on loan last January at the Reebok Stadium, and it looks like he was after Jack for a season long loan deal, and reports were also that Newcastle were interested.
Wilshere is thought to be part of England’s plans for the European Championships in the Ukraine and Poland in 2012, and it looks like Arsene thinks Jack can get a lot of first team games next season at the London club.
It seems that Wilshere has made an impact on Arsenal’s tour of Austria and Wenger, a master at bringing young players through the ranks at Arsenal, thinks he is ready right now.
But we don’t think this is a blow to Newcastle, because we have our own very impressive central midfielder in 17 year-old Slovenian Haris Vuckic – so why bring in Jack when we could be giving Haris some games?
The priority has to be with your own youngsters, after all.
