Jack Wilshere says he wants to stay and sign a new deal with Arsenal, but acknowledges that the decision is one the club have to make.
Arsene Wenger has promised talks before the end of the month, and having worked his way back into the squad for the Premier League, the 25 year old has reiterated his desire to stay with the club and sign a new deal.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said, “I said it before, before I even played in the Premier League this is where I want to be. This is where I see myself in the future.
“Whether things sort themselves out in the next few weeks we’ll see I suppose.
“I definitely want to be, there, I’m enjoying my football and I want to help Arsenal get to where it should be.
We just have to sort things out, and I’m sure that will happen in the next couple of weeks and that’ll be sorted.
“I think the biggest thing for any footballer and especially for me because of the injuries and the games I’ve missed, is that you’re playing.
“Apart from that there’s small things to sort out, but as long as I’m playing I’m happy. I just want to be playing.”
With the World Cup on the horizon, Wilshere was asked if he was thinking about getting the nod from Gareth Southgate for his international return.
“I think I’ve proved yo myself I can play in the Premier League,” he said.
“I trust my body, and I think I can affect games.
“That’s all I can do, have a positive effect on this team and we’ll see if the England manager picks me.”
Wilshere is likely to be in the team to face Liverpool on Friday night.
