Confirmed: Arsenal midfielder to miss the rest of the season
Bournemouth have confirmed that on-loan Jack Wilshere will miss the rest of the season with a hairline fracture of his left fibula.
It had been reported this was the case but a statement from Bournemouth has confirmed it.
Wilshere has a little over a ear to run on his current deal at the Emirates and this has to throw his future in to further doubt.
The statement read: “X-rays after the game were clear but further scans showed a hairline crack of his left fibula.
“Wilshere will now undergo further specialist assessments in the forthcoming days to identify more specifics regarding the injury and also to structure a rehabilitation programme. He will miss the remaining five games of the season.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe praised the England midfielder: “It is a big blow to lose Jack.
“We have loved working with him since he arrived at the club last August. He has made a huge contribution to our season, both on and off the pitch. We wish him a quick recovery and thank him for his effort and professionalism while he was with us.”
