Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has joined Bolton on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old has made seven Arsenal first-team appearances this season but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has given the green light to the move in order for the player to gain further experience in the Barclays Premier League.

The highly-rated attacking midfielder is expected to go straight into the Bolton squad for Saturday's Premier League encounter with Liverpool at Anfield.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle told the club's official website: "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.

"It is similar to the deal with [Manchester City loanee] 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."

Wilshere, who has represented England at all youth levels including under-21, became Arsenal's youngest ever league player at 16 years and 256 days when he made his debut as a substitute at Blackburn in September 2008.

The Stevenage-born teenager signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal in July.

Meanwhile, Bolton have confirmed defender Paul Robinson's loan deal from Coca-Cola Championship side West Brom has been made permanent.
