Bolton want to extend Wilshere loan deal
Thursday 27 May 2010
Bolton manager Owen Coyle has approached his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger about the possibility of midfielder Jack Wilshere returning on loan next season.
However, Coyle insists defender Gary Cahill will not be part of any package after he had been linked with the Gunners.
Coyle said: "I called Arsene Wenger to thank him for letting us have Jack last season. I think it was a fantastic experience for him and a very worthwhile one for us too.
"I honestly think he improved as a player, so we have asked the question. If he feels that Jack is not quite ready for first-team football [at Arsenal] next season, then we would love the opportunity to bring him back.
"The fans can see what a great young English talent he is, and I believe that with another full season under his belt, that he can really push on.
"That is how we left it - so we'll both go away and take a break, and then see what happens."
Coyle added in the Bolton News: "There has been no dialogue about Gary Cahill whatsoever, with Arsenal or anyone else for that matter.
"I have got no desire to lose Gary - he's a big, big part of what I am trying to do here."
