Jack Wilshere believes that his loan move from Arsenal to Bournemouth is a good way for him to get back into shape and regain his form.
Wilshere, 24, was sent out on loan on transfer deadline day from Arsenal to fellow Premier League sie Bournemouth. The central midfielder missed all but three games last season due to injury, and was selected for England’s Euro 2016 squad. But with heavy competition on the position at Arsenal, the club thought it was best if he left on loan to secure playing time. Wilshere believes the move will be beneficial for him going forward.
“I had a good chat with the manager and feel sure this is the best place for me to play and develop this season,” Wilshere said in a statement on Twitter. “I would like to thank everyone at the club for making me feel so welcome. I am looking forward to working hard every day with the coaching staff and my new team-mates to help the club achieve success on the pitch.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is pleased to welcome Wilshere to the club, as he believes he can add a lot to the team.
“We had a good talk about football, about Bournemouth the place and the club, thankfully he chose us,” Howe said. “We talked about the club and various different things, obviously we’re delighted he’s chosen us and I feel he will do really well in the team. Jack is obviously out there on his own with his profile and what we’ve attracted before, it’s a good deal and one that can work for both sides. He can complement our style of play and maybe add that missing piece to the jigsaw.”
