Jack Wilshere may become Arsenal captain as soon as next season as wholesale changes are likely to occur at the Emirates Stadium.

Manchester United defender Reece Brown has been loaned to Ipswich for the rest of the season. The 21-year-old is the brother of former-United centre-back Wes Brown, and his move to Ipswich will be the fifth loan switch of his career.
