As Manchester United are rumoured to be signing the, cough, over the hill, splutter, Michael Owen, Arsenal have announced some fantastic news that will disappoint a host of clubs who were keeping a crafty eye on things, Jack Wilshere has signed a new long term deal at the club.
This boy is a special talent and this is great news. It is certainly worth remembering that players of Jack's age have been nabbed by prowling rival clubs before, for example a certain young Sturridge is in the process of being whipped away from City by Chelsea. When this happens and the fee is set by tribunal, the money on offer is invariably an insult added to the injury. Here's to Jack continuing his rise next season.
