Bolton manager Owen Coyle is keen to extend the loan spell of Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere.
Coyle expects Arsenal to want the 18-year-old midfielder, who has made a positive impression since moving to the Reebok Stadium in January, back soon but feels he could benefit from staying with the Trotters.
"It would do him good staying with us and he would go back there bigger and stronger, said Coyle.
"All I'm saying is if Arsene and Arsenal don't think he will be playing regularly at the start of the season, give me another six months and I will give him back in January. I would love to keep him."
He added: "It is clear that Jack wants to be an Arsenal player - I love that about him, he's desperate to play in the Arsenal team.
"But if he wasn't going to be in the Arsenal team, I believe it would help myself, Jack and Arsenal to give me another six months."
