Manchester United prodigy Tom Cleverley is hoping to emulate the success of Jack Wilshere upon returning to Old Trafford.
The 21-year-old midfielder has gained invaluable experience on a season-long loan with Wigan, where he has received plaudits for a number cultured performances.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has already confirmed that Cleverley will come back to the club at the end of the campaign, and the youngster is hoping to play a significant role next year.
Cleverley cites the rise to prominence of England under 21 teammate Jack Wilshere as an inspiration - and he believes he can have a similar impact at Old Trafford.
“I look at how Jack Wilshere has managed to do everything, and now he’s playing every week in the top flight at Arsenal," said the United starlet.
"It’s pretty rare you get that chance but, comparing us, I look at what he has achieved this year and hope I can do it next season.
“I want to finish on a high with Wigan and then break into the United squad when I go back.’’
Along with Cleverley, fellow United loan rangers Mame Biram Diouf, Danny Welbeck and Federico Macheda will also return to Old Trafford in time for next season.
