Wilshere gives Arsenal boost

England midfielder Jack Wilshere has given his club Arsenal a real lift by revealing he intends to stay at the club for the rest of his career.

The 19-year-old, who has yet to play this season due to a foot injury, has established himself in both the Arsenal and England team over the past 12 months, emerging as one of the country’s brightest talents.

The Gunners began the season as outsiders in the premier league betting after selling key players Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas over the summer.

Fears remain over manager Arsene Wenger’s ability to the rest of his stars, with Robin van Persie’s future in doubt as he is yet to sign a new contract.

Wilshere though appears to have eased some fans concerns by committing the rest of his career with the Gunners.

"Can I promise I will be at Arsenal for ever? I can promise that, yes.

"I've been at the club since I was nine and I've learned to love it.

"From the (Patrick) Vieira days, to (Dennis) Bergkamp, (Cesc) Fabregas, I've watched them come through and move on.

"But now there's a crop of new players, (Aaron) Ramsey, myself, Kieran Gibbs, hopefully we can really create something special.

"I love the club and I want to be part of its future."

Wilshere also took to Twitter to update his followers over his progress in recovery from injury, adding: "As I said had 6 week X-ray earlier and all going well. I can start to work a bit harder now."

The news is music to the ears of Arsenal fans who, despite being delighted with the upturn in the club’s football scores (four league wins on the bounce, just one defeat in 11) remains fearful that they can no longer offer the highest wages and so players are at risk of being poached by the likes of big-spending Manchester City. Wilshere’s commitment, they hope, is a sign to current and prospective Arsenal players that they still mean business.
