Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere has reaffirmed his commitment to the cause at the Emirates.

The England international has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence with the Gunners, with 50 club appearances to his name already despite spending last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers.

At 19 years of age, the player already has a huge weight of expectation on his shoulders for both club and country, but recent comments about his determination to win trophies at the Emirates will come as music to the ears of Arsenal fans.

"In 10 years time I still want to be at Arsenal, winning trophies for my club and the national team as well," said Wilshere.

"I've been there [at Arsenal] since I was nine or 10 - it feels like I've always been there. The club's been great to me and I feel I owe them that to be there and to stay around."

After a stunning display against Barcelona in the Champions League, the Spanish giants have been speculatively linked with a move for the player, with Xavi and Anders Iniesta both paying compliments to the player following his performance a fortnight ago.


Defeat in the Carling Cup final left a sour taste in the Arsenal teenager's mouth, but he admits that much is owed to manager Arsene Wenger and he plans to stick by the Arsenal boss for years to come.

"This year he's given me the chance and I owe him a lot," Wilshere finished.
