Jack Wilshere says he will not decide on his future until the end of the season and is focused on maintaining Bournemouth's Premier League status.
Wilshere told Sky Sports News he was enjoying his time on loan at Bournemouth and the opportunity for regular football will be a deciding factor in where he plays next year.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger today said he plans to bring the England midfielder back to the Emirates but Wilshere refused to be drawn on his future.
He said: "My main focus at the minute is on playing for Bournemouth, getting them out of the position they're in and back to winning ways.
"I'm concentrating on the next three or four months and then I'm not sure what's going to happen."
When asked if Arsenal had offered a him a new contract, Wilshere said: "I leave that to my agent.
"I'm just concentrating on maintaining my fitness, playing games and I'm enjoying it. As long as I'm here I'm going to enjoy it and help Bournemouth."
On needing to play regular football next season, Wilshere said: "At the end of the season, when I sit down and think about [his future], that will be a big factor.
"I need to play, that's why I came here. Bournemouth gave me that opportunity.
"It's a big time for this club. They've worked really hard to get to the position they are today.
"We want to maintain our Premier League status and we know it's going to be a big job. It's going to be hard but we are up for it."
Wilshere admitted he could not stop the rumours on social media regarding his future, but would definitely be waiting until the end of the season to decide.
He said: "At the end of the season, when we see what I've done at Bournemouth, I'll have a couple of weeks off on holiday and then think about it."
