Wilshere considers loan move away from Emirates
Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere is willing to secure a loan move, but would only consider an offer from a Premier League club.
Arsene Wenger's policy is to send his young stars out on loan to smaller Premier League or lower league clubs to experience first-team football, with the likes of Jay Simpson currently on loan at QPR and Henri Lansbury at Watford.
And with Wilshere starting just two games this season, both Carling Cup ties, and making two appearances from the bench late in the game, the 17-year-old could be following in their footsteps.
A graduate of the Gunners' impressive academy system, Wilshere is desperate to continue playing in the top flight.
"I would think about it but I think it would have to be 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, of course, rather stay and be involved at Arsenal though, so we will see what happens."
