Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that highly-rated youngster Jack Wilshere will definitely be loaned out this month.
Several Premier League clubs including Bolton Wanderers, Burnley, Wigan Athletic and West Ham have all been linked with moves for the 18-year-old midfielder this month.
Dutch outfit FC Twente, who are coached by former England manager Steve McClaren, have also made their interest in the youngster known.
Wilshere has made seven first-team appearances for the Gunners this season – only one of which has come in the Premier League – and Wenger is keen to loan him out to another top-flight club.
"I will let him go out on loan without any doubt," he told the club's official website.
"I want him to go to the right club and play."
