Arsène Wenger has admitted that he is considering sending Jack Wilshere out on loan - but only if the right club comes along.
 
The English midfielder has appeared five times for Arsenal this season and now that the Gunners' Carling Cup campaign is over, a temporary move to another club could be a way for Wilshere to play regular first-team football.
 
The 17-year-old told the Official Arsenal Matchday Programme that he would consider a loan move and even revealed that he had received offers from Championship and Scottish Premier League outfits.

However, both Wilshere and manager Wenger agree that a move away from the Premier League might not be the best option.

"There is a chance [of a loan move for Wilshere] if we have an interesting opportunity," said Wenger.
 
"I would prefer [it to be] in the Premier League but a top-level Championship club would be interesting as well.
 
"It is important for Jack now to play and if we find a good opportunity we will consider it."
