Mon 18 January 2021 | 18:42

Jack Wilshere will resume his career at Bournemouth

The former England and Arsenal midfielder will play for Bournemouth until the end of the season. Jack Wilshere's contract with West Ham expired last October and he has been a free agent ever since. Wilshere had previously joined Bournemouth on loan in the 2016-17 season and made 27 appearances.

The 29-year-old told the club's official website :

"It feels great to be back and I can't wait to get started

.

"From the minute I walked through the door three weeks ago, it felt natural and like I had never been away.

"I know a lot of the players and staff here and I'm pleased they allowed me to train initially, and then it just went from there.

"I've been impressed by the coaching staff, the way they work and the ambitions of the club to get back in the Premier League.

"We all share the same ambitions and I'm looking forward to playing my part in helping achieve those."

Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake is excited about Wilshere returning to the team

I’m delighted that Jack has returned to the club on a permanent contract,

” Blake said,

“He is a fantastic footballer whose quality has been evident since breaking into the Arsenal first team as a 16-year-old

.

“We loved having him here on loan in the 2016/17 season, he loved being here and he had a huge impact on the club both on and off the pitch.

“In the three weeks he has been training with us we have seen hunger and desire to match his undoubted talent, and he will add some great attributes to our midfield over the coming months.”

Bournemouth relegated to the Championship last season and are third in the league now.
