"Wilshere, 18, has been at the Gunners since he was nine years old,"

This from a BBC story about one of Arsenal's players signing a long-term 
contract.  My question is why did they wait so long to sign him in the first 
place?  At age nine they must have had what...three years' evidence of his 
playing ability?  What an extraordinary world.
