Midfielder Jack Wilshere will be offered a new Arsenal contract despite being sent to Bournemouth on loan this season, the London club’s manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday.
Regarded as one of the brightest young hopes in English football, the 24-year-old Wilshere fell out of favour at Arsenal after managing only 17 games in two seasons blighted by injury., reports Reuters.
“Of course. Ideally (it will be addressed before next summer). We have to plan around the new year,” Wenger told reporters when asked if Wilshere would be offered a new deal by Arsenal.
“I’m happy he is developing well and it was a good decision to go to Bournemouth as he gets regular football. The observations I am getting is that he is getting stronger every week and that is what he needed,” Wenger added.
“I am happy he has not had any injuries. When a player like Jack is in top form, you miss him always.”
