Gunners Starlet Wilshere Has Pre-Contract Agreement

Written by Chris Wheatley


Jack Wilshere has a pre-contract agreement with Arsenal when he signs on pro forms in January which will see him make an enormous £15,000 a week.

The 16-year-old was promoted to the first team after impressing boss Arsene Wenger during pre-season and was subsequently rewarded with the number 19 shirt.

He continued to impress in the Emirates Cup and his 15-minute cameo role against La Liga winners Real Madrid confirmed the fact that Wilshere looks the part in the Arsenal first team squad; he is now set to earn 200 times his current wage packet.

Then, the England Under-17 star scored in the Carling Cup thrashing of Sheffield United. Premier League money-bags Chelsea were immediately linked with the Stevenage-born starlet.

Wilshere will sign his first professional deal when he turns 17 on New Year’s Day. Keep up to date with all the latest news and views on Arsenal’s reserve & youth set-up over at our good friends Young Guns.

How water-tight is this pre-contract?


He deserves a proper contract & should also be rewarded with a starting role in the game against porto..


you know ricky i wouldn’t be suprised.

jack is a completely unknown talent, especially abroad.

lets hope. Nasri is back so thats good. I’m gutted song is still out.

My team for tomorrow

Sagna Silvestre Toure Clichy
Nasri Fabregas Denilson Eboue
Bendtner V. persie

Fabianski, Wilshere, Walcott, Adebayor, Vela, Djourou, Gallas


very happy that nasri is fit and hopefully he will stay that way, i honestly believe we would have scored more than 1 against hull if he was playing..seems to shoot on sight which is such a rare thing as an arsenal player..wenger has said today that there is a lack of height in our central pairing(gallas and toure)..well im glad hes noticed and hopefuly will drop gallas and put JD in


Excuse my language but fuck me! £15,ooo a week for a 16year old. Thats almose £800,000 a year. Wouldnt mind that.

Nik and Vela have to start and play the whole game. Gallas and Ade need to spend a few games out of the team. Maybe that’ll teach them for being so shit.

Jack should start too. Any1 know when Diaby is back?

The Brain

Just some concerns on his wage. It seems the players at Arsenal can get higher wages at a younger age than those at a different club similar to size. As all Arsenal players are meant to become world beaters they will get higher wages earlier and when they start playing well they’ll demand more. i.e Adebayor gets £60,000 at 24.
This is why our wage bill is te third most highest even though we don’t sign many established players.
