'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wenger Would Prefer PL Loan Spell For Wilshere

Arsene Wenger says he'd prefer Jack Wilshere to take a loan period to another Premiership club as Steve McClaren's FC Twente and today's opponents Bolton Wanderers duke it out for the temporary signature of Arsenal's wily Englishman.

The Arsenal manager has been looking to get Jack Wilshere some playing time recently, but with the injuries we have suffered and the seemingly massive importance on every game we play from here till the end of the season, Wenger seems reluctant to throw Wilshere in at the deep end.

Instead Arsene is looking to loan out the midfielder with a view to getting him some regular playing time that's without possible detriment to our own league ambitions.

Speculation had been reported that former England manager Steve McClaren was looking to take him to his Dutch side FC Twente, however Wenger seems more keen on him experiencing regular football in the league he intends to play in in the future.

'I've heard Twente are interested, but I would prefer Jack to play in the Premier League,' said Wenger.

'It is easier for us to observe him and come to the conclusion that he is ready to play for us next year.'

Wilshere had been linked with a move to Burnley, but the departure of Owen Coyle to Bolton saw the speculation change clubs with him. Coincidentally for Coyle, his first two games in charge of Bolton sees him face the team he'd like to borrow from.

Please god (Wenger), don't let this promising talent go to this bunch of talentless mugs.

I dont think Wenger will let him go to Bolton - the club's playing style and the manager's willingness to play him are important factors for Wenger to decide where Jack will go out on loan.

Hammers, that's where I want him to go
DBerg
Phew, the thugs have done their team a disservice in trying to get young Jack in showing their true thuggish colours. I hope the boss was angry with some of their rough house **** and decided to send Jack somewhere else. Yes DBerg West Ham is a good shout, the boy wouldn't have to move out of London. If Wenger wants him to play in a slightly more physical environment than Arsenal but learn from a good manager, how about Fulham?
GoonerLou
I agree DBerg, definitely the Hammers! He will stay in London and at least play in a team that tries to pass the football!

I definitley think Jack would be better off going to West Ham, he wouldnt have to move, its probably his choice, they play good football and i think he could learn alot from Zola too.
