OFFICIAL: Wilshere joins Bournemouth on loan

The oft-injured midfielder seeks to rebuild his Premier League reputation with a season away from Arsenal as he links up with Eddie Howe’s side following a wealth of interest

England midfielder Jack Wilshere will seek to reignite his career away from Arsenal after agreeing a season-long loan move to Bournemouth.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has allowed Wilshere to go in search of first-team football elsewhere as he bids to get back on track following a series of injury setbacks that have seen him fall out of favour for club and country. 

And the Cherries have taken full advantage, seeing off competition from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace and West Ham to land the 24-year-old on deadline day.

Roma and AC Milan were also reported to have shown an interest.

Wilshere made just three appearances in the Premier League during 2015-16 after suffering a broken leg during pre-season training. 

Granit Xhaka has since been preferred in the centre of midfield since the start of the season, with the England star coming off the bench in both Arsenal’s clashes to date. 

And despite attracting interest from the Serie A clubs after requesting a loan move, he will stay in the Premier League under Eddie Howe for the current campaign.
