Midfielder Jack Wilshere, who’s currently on loan at Bournemouth from Arsenal gave a convincing display in his side’s victory over Hull on Saturday – and Cherries fans hailed the on loan star on Twitter.
The 24-year-old midfielder completed a move from the Gunners to the south coast outfit on transfer deadline day, which will see him stay in Dorset until the end of the season.
He has made five appearances for Eddie Howe’s side since joining and his performance in the 6-1 victory over Hull on Saturday saw him hailed as one of the side’s star performers.
Wilshere started the match and played 79 minutes and Bournemouth fans were left him impressed with his composure on the ball.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Wilshere doesn't fit the typical English stereotype, probably why people can't see what he brings, he's as classy as they come #afcb

I get the feeling some sites/papers have their Jack Wilshere narrative pre-planned. He's been great – low-key but better all the time #afcb

I'm surprised that people think Wilshere was average yesterday. So calm and positive. Helps rest of the team by always finding space #afcb

Saw a different side of Wilshere today, not the attacking midfielder but a deep lying Playmaker that held the ball so well #afcb

Wilshere has joined Bournemouth in a quest to get more game time after a struggle with injuries with Arsene Wenger’s team in the past year.
He was once regarded as one of England’s brightest young talents and he will be keen to try and fulfil that early potential.
Bournemouth are now sat in 10th place in the Premier League table and with Wilshere they could be looking to achieve their highest ever finish in the English pyramid.
