Arsenal latest: Wilshere on Hull, Jebb loaned out and AGM quotes

Jack Wilshere Press Conference - 18/02/2014

All the latest news and gossip from the past 24 hours at The Emirates.

Jack Wilshere has been discussing this weekend's tie against Hull City, which he admits brings back good memories. The England international, who has shone on the recent international break, was of course referring to the FA Cup final triumph from last season.

Arsenal defeated Hull at Wembley in May, after coming back from two goals down and Wilshere is excited to get at The Tigers again:

"It was a fantastic day for the whole team, We played against a side we expected to beat but it was a cup final and they were always going to be up for it.

“They got two early goals but we always felt that if we got the goal before half-time we’d go on and win it - thankfully we did."

But he also knows that Hull will be after revenge:

“Hull were a good team last year but they’ve improved their squad and they’ve got a year of experience in the Premier League. They’re going to be a hard team to play against because their players will want to do well at the Emirates.”

Arsenal youngster Jack Jebb, who has been dubbed the 'next Wilshere' in the past, has joined League Two outfit Stevenage on loan.

Jebb will spend one month at the club and Arsenal wished him well in his new surroundings.

The 19-year-old has struggled for regular football with the under-21s this season.

Arsene Wenger has been speaking at the club's AGM, with the main headline being his admittance that the club were one signing short this summer.

He stated:

"I agree we could have bought one more player,” Wenger said. “We didn’t find [him]. We will try in December to rectify that because we are a bit short with the injuries we have and, overall, I think we will rectify that on the transfer market in January.”
