Youngster Wilshere NOT Going Out On Loan

Wilshere

Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere will NOT be shipped out on loan this January, contrary to reports from the British tabloids.

16-year-old Wilshere, who signs his professional contract next month, will stay at the Gunners to continue his long-term development.

British tabloid The Daily Mail stupendously forgot to do their research on the story, and in fact got Wilshere mixed up with up-and-coming forward Jay Simpson – their incompetence certainly shone through.

French tactician Arsene Wenger even said several weeks ago that there is no chance that young Jack will move on loan.

“Jay Simpson, Gavin Hoyte and Kieran Gibbs might go on loan,” Wenger told Arsenal.

“They need to play in the Championship for three or four months. Not Jack Wilshere though, he is only 16.”

Simpson meanwhile is reportedly considering a new three-year deal at the Emirates, but the Gunners’ staff would like the 20-year-old to get a run of Premier League games first, in order to build his experience.

He is set to join West Brom when the transfer window opens on January 1st, find out more about the kid and others over at Young Guns.

It would make sense do give him a game. He definitely needs to bulk up though, Jack would get muscled out in the Premier League.

VG idea to let Simpson have half a season getting regular PL football for the Baggies. I have suspected for some time that Simpson is better than Bendtner, and we should now get the chance to see if that is true.

Wenger did the right thing as youngsters always turn out to be successors

Maybe Wilshere could do with the Championship experience though. Hes got real spirit and a fight about him; would be great for toughening him up. Itll be a grueling experience but then on the other hand where else could they send Wilshere on loan to. The Spanish League or The French League or wherever Wenger has built ties with maybe? To be honest I can’t see what Wenger wants to do with him in the meantime? Does this mean he’s actually going to give him a decent run of first team games? Or keep letting him wallow in reserves matches… Read more »
