Official: Bolton Wanderers Sign Jack Wilshere On Loan From Arsenal Until End Of Season

Bolton Wanderers have today confirmed that they have secured the services of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere on loan for the rest of the season.

The 18-year-old, who has made 15 first team appearances for the Gunners and has been capped at U-21 level by England, will add some attacking flair to the Bolton midfield.

Trotters manager Owen Coyle was delighted to welcome a player of such obvious promise into his squad.

"Jack is a talented, young, hungry player who I think has got a bright future ahead of him. He has got an abundance of quality and he will enhance our squad," the Wanderers gaffer told the club's official website.

"It is similar to the deal with Vladimir Weiss in terms of the belief that I can help the player and the player can help this football club.

"The deals suit all parties concerned if the boys go and deliver on the pitch."
