Jack Wilshere has revealed that he wants to stay at Arsenal and is confident he will sign another contract with the club.

It was reported that the England midfielder has rejected the chance to sign a new deal with the Gunners on a reduced salary.

However, the 26-year-old has reiterated that the talks between both sides are underway, although it was not easy.

Arsenal are unlikely to lose manager Arsene Wenger and Jack Wilshere as well at the end of the season.

“We are still in the same position really,” Wilshere told Sky Sports News. “Not much has changed. We are still talking.”

“Obviously the boss has left which has changed things a little bit because I don’t know who is going to be the manager next year and that can change things. But we are still talking and I am hopeful and the club is hopeful we can get something done.”

“To be honest with you, I haven’t really thought about [moving elsewhere]. I have said before that this is where I want to be and I have not really had much time to think about moving clubs.”

“We have been playing every three or four days for the last three or four months so it has been difficult. I am concentrating on games and obviously the boss left so it has been a bad couple of months, to be honest.”

Wilshere joined Arsenal youth system in 2001 from Luton Town when he was only 9 years old. The midfielder has made 195 appearances for the North-Londoners, scoring 14 goals since breaking into the first team in 2008.
