Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has admitted that his future might not be back at Arsenal, after his season-long loan spell at Bournemouth ends.
Wilshere, 24, came through the youth ranks at Arsenal and looked like a career Gunner despite being hampered by a string of injuries.
However, in one of the shock moves of the summer, Wilshere was loaned out to Bournemouth in a bid to get first-team football and continue his rehabilitation.
Now, talking in The Mail, Wilshere has admitted that a return to Arsenal might not be a foregone conclusion.
“I haven’t really thought about my future beyond getting a season under my belt and just trying to improve as a player,” he said.
“To be honest your question is a hard question to answer because I don’t know what to say. I genuinely don’t know if I am going to end up at Arsenal or somewhere else.
“If you’d asked me two months ago if I was going to finish my career at Arsenal then I would have said, ‘Yeah, of course’.
“The fans have been great to me, the boss has been great to me. I have a lot of friends there. But sometimes that’s the way football is. Two months ago I wouldn’t have seen myself being here, but here I am. And I’m enjoying it.”
There has been lots of speculation about the future of Jack Wilshere, with pundit Jamie Redknapp urging him to leave his boyhood club.
Wilshere has made six Premier League appearances for Bournemouth so far this season, but is yet to contribute a goal or an assist.
