Wilshere: Plenty of English kids coming through at Arsenal

Jack Wilshere says Arsenal's future is exciting - and English.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been criticised for building his side around foreign stars.

But Wilshire insists there will be plenty of English youngsters in the Arsenal team soon.

He added: "I'm proud that so many young English players have got this far. We've got a mixed squad but it's great to see them coming through. It's good for all of us in the team and it keeps the spirit up.

"There are more even younger too - Benik Afobe, Chuks Aneke people like that.

"The English players join the club at a young age and keep working hard. That moves them up through the age groups and they're there when they're older.

"Hopefully they continue to do it in the future too."
