Coyle still keen on Wilshere

Owen Coyle is hoping to lure former Burnley target Jack Wilshere of Arsenal to his new club Bolton Wanderers. Coyle made the move from the Clarets to Bolton two weeks ago but is hoping his change of clubs will not lead to him missing out on signing the 18-year-old starlet. Speaking ahead of his new side's second league meeting in three days with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night, Coyle again admitted his interest in the teenage midfielder. "I admire good players and that kid is certainly a good player," he said when asked about his interest. He continued: "I'm a little bit uncomfortable talking about it because we play Arsenal on Wednesday and I don't think that's the way we should go about it. "But he's a fantastic young player, a player I believe will eventually play in the Arsenal first team and for England. "He's one that I've always admired, but I think that conversation is for after Wednesday night when we've played Arsenal, and we'll take it from there."
