Jack Wilshere has found a new club as he’s agreed a short-term contract with Bournemouth, talkSPORT understands.
The former Arsenal and West Ham star has been without a club since leaving the Hammers by mutual consent last October.
Injury has prevented Wilshere from being able to fulfil his potential
But he’s been given an opportunity by Bournemouth
It’s understood Wilshere‘s contract with the south coast club is until the end of this season.
Wilshere begun his career with the Gunners with plenty of promise and made his debut for England’s senior side in August 2010 aged 18.
However, the 29-year-old midfielder has been dogged with injury throughout his career which ultimately led to his departure from Arsenal in 2018.
West Ham took him on that summer but he could only manage 19 appearances in over two years with the east London side and his three-year deal was terminated a year early.
Wilshere started just nine of those 19 appearances for West Ham
But he’s been given a chance by the Cherries, where he enjoyed a productive loan spell in the 2016/17 season.
It will be viewed as a gamble to sign a player so susceptible to injuries but Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall recently told talkSPORT that Wilshere was ‘looking sharp’ in training.
“Jacks still training with us, hes training well, hes looking sharp and its really good to have him,” he told Alex Crook last week.
“Whenever youve got a player of Jacks quality training with you and youre able to have a closer look, it would be foolish to say theyre not a chance of wanting to do something.”
Wilshere’s new club are four points off an automatic promotion spot in the Championship
Bournemouth are third in the Championship as they look to get promoted back into the Premier League after being relegated last season.
Wilshere is available for the next match on Tuesday, which sees them travel to a resurgent Derby.
