Jack Wilshere's short-term future will be decided within the next 48 hours according to Arsène Wenger.
 
The Arsenal manager is keen to send the midfielder on loan to gain first-team experience. The 18-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, including Bolton, Burnley and West Ham United.
 
Speaking at his press conference on Tuesday afternoon the Frenchman announced that a short-term move is imminent, with Burnley in contention to take the Englishman on loan.
 
"We have interest from Premier League teams," said Wenger. "It will be decided today or tomorrow. Burnley is an opportunity.

"At the end of the day, Wilshere will have his word to say, because he needs to decide where he likes to go."
