Wilshere considers loan move

08 Dec 2009 - 08:16:01

Young Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere has admitted he would be willing to make a temporary switch as he looks to get some first-team games under his belt.

The classy midfielder has featured just five times this term, three of these coming from the bench.

Boss Arsene Wenger's continued reluctance to unleash the 17-year-old sensation is merely a decision to prevent early burn-out.

However, he could feature in Wednesday's Champions League game at Olympiacos, with the Gunners already assured of their knockout stage berth.

Championship outfits are rumoured to be considering a loan swoop but Wilshere believes in order to aid his burgeoning talent, it would be better to remain in the Premier League.

He said: "Not that the Championship is a bad league at all, but it might suit me differently.

"I have seen things about Middlesbrough, Celtic and Rangers being interested and there may be others, but a Premier League side would be better.

"I would think about it but I think it would have to be in the Premier League.

"I would, of course, rather stay and be involved at Arsenal though, so we will see what happens."
