Jack Wilshere has insisted that he has no plans to leave Arsenal in the near future, with the 19-year-old going so far as to commit to the club ‘forever’.

Wilshere is currently suffering from an ankle injury, and has undergone surgery in the hope of recovering for early 2012.

And the youngster, who is seen as a future England star as well as a great coup for the Gunners, has put down any possibility of transfer talk by saying he plans to be part of the future for Arsenal.

"Can I promise I will be at Arsenal forever? I can promise that, yes," he told Ifilm London.

"I've been at the club since I was nine and I've learned to love it. From the [Patrick] Vieira days, to [Dennis] Bergkamp, [Cesc] Fabregas, I've watched them come through and move on.

"But now there's a crop of new players, [Aaron] Ramsey, myself, Kieran Gibbs, hopefully we can really create something special. I love the club and I want to be part of its future."

Wilshere also gave Arsenal fans an update on his injury, revealing that he has had an X-ray and his recovery is on track for a much-anticipated return at the Emirates.

"As I said had six week X-ray earlier and all going well," he wrote on his Twitter account.

"I can start to work a bit harder now."

The news will no doubt bring even more positive feelings to Arsenal, as they look to get their season back on track and challenge for a top four position in the Barclays Premier League.
