Wilshere ready to leave Arsenal

The 17-year-old is still a fringe player at Arsenal and could be interested in regular action at another Premier League club.

“I would think about it but I think it would have to be in the Premier League,” he said.

“Not that the Championship is a bad league at all, but it might suit me differently.

“I have seen things about Middlesbrough, Celtic and Rangers being interested and there may be others, but a Premier League side would be better.

“I would, of course, rather stay and be involved at Arsenal though, so we will see what happens.”
