Eddie Howe wants Jack Wilshere to stay with Bournemouth but insists no talks have taken place over a permanent switch from Arsenal for the England international.
Repeated injuries have hampered Wilshere’s career over the years at Arsenal and in order to bring his form back on track he was loaned out to Bournemouth earlier this season.
Wilshere has made 17 appearances for the Cherries so far and succeeded to make a positive impact but the 25-year-old revealed this week he was undecided over his future.
“We’d love Jack Wilshere to stay but there’s been no discussion with Arsenal,” Howe said ahead of Monday’s Premier League match against Manchester City.
“We are treating it as a loan for this season, as ever.”
