Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed 16 year old wonder kid Jack Wilshere will be a part of his first team next season, and will also feature during the Carling Cup.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Wenger also confirmed Mark Randall, Henri Lansbury and Kieran Gibbs would also be promoted. However he held special praise for Wilshere.

"The next generation is (Henri) Lansbury, (Kieran) Gibbs, (Mark) Randall, Jack Wilshere. I don't think he (Wilshere) will stay a long time in the Reserves."

Wenger watched on two weeks ago as Jack Wilshere scored a goal, and made a goal.

Wilshere will not be involved in the remaining Premiership fixtures, after he flew out to Italy on Wednesday to take part in the Atalanta Cup.
