Jack Wilshere released by Birmingham after short term deal

Thu 27 May 2021 | 13:25

The former Arsenal star's second spell in Birmingham did not last more than five months

Jack Wilshere was released Bournemouth after half a season at the club.

Wilshere, 29, who played 17 games for the team under Jason Tyndall and new manager Jonathan Woodgate, was unable to persuade the club to continue despite scoring against Birmingham City and Crawley City. Junior Stanislas and Adam Smith, who were offered a contract extension in the autumn, have continued to negotiate during this period and have not yet responded to the club about their future, and Birmingham are still in talks with their agents.

Following the release of Wilshere by West Ham last summer, he rejoined Bournemouth for a second season and helped the club reach the Championship play-offs. However, they lost in the play-off semi-final against Bertfordford and could not return to the Premier League.

Wilshere played in the first match, came on as a substitute and his team suffered a 1-0 defeat and was on the bench in the next game. The former Arsenal star thanked Bournemouth and his fans in a post on Instagram and wished them success.

He wrote:

"Thank you to everyone @officialafcb for the last five months. My team-mates, All the staff and especially the fans," Wilshere wrote in an Instagram post. "You were amazing last time and continued to support me this time. Being honest, I don't know if this is the end. The coming weeks will tell.

"Unfortunately we didn't reach our goal of promotion but there is plenty of positives and experience to take into next year to get this club back where it belongs! Have a good summer."

While at the beginning of Wilshere's football career, he was expected to become one of the stars of the football world, but several injuries prevented him, and now it remains to be seen which team will sign him.
