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.
