Arsene Wenger has revealed that Jack Wilshere will be back in his Arsenal plans in February.

The 19-year old midfielder has been sidelined with an ankle injury since pre-season and will not be back before the second month of the New Year following a scan yesterday.

"He had a very important scan on Thursday and that was very, very good, exceptionally good," Wenger said.

"The news we have for Jack is very positive. No [he will not be back sooner], we will respect the delays. I count maybe mid-February for Jack."
