Both players made the move to the south coast on season long loan deals.

Wilshere made the surprise move to Dean Court on transfer deadline day following interest from Crystal Palace and Italian clubs AC Milan and Roma.

‘No. Jack`s with us for the season.’

Discussing Nathan Ake’s future at Dean Court after previous reports stated that Chelsea were unhappy with Nathan Ake’s lack of playing time at Bournemouth and could recall him in January to send him elsewhere.

Howe added…

‘We see his future here for this season, the whole season, With most loan agreements there are certain clauses. We`ll have to see what happens, but we want Nathan to stay.

‘Ake will be a brilliant player in a couple of years time and some game time.

His athleticism gets him out of jail from the times he is caught out positionally. With another year or two of experience, his positioning will improve.

Still think as a shield to the back 4 will eventually be his best position – Makelele like.
