Arsenal and Bournemouth have both confirmed that Jack Wilshere will miss the final month of the season with a hairline fracture in his leg.
The idea of sending Wilshere on loan to Bournemouth was to help him get matches and either rebuild his value for a sale or see if he could progress toward being an integral member of the Arsenal first team. For most of the season, Wilshere was moving strongly toward those goals. Given the role of his lengthy injury history in derailing his career at Arsenal leading up to his loan move, this injury may serve to undo much of the good that serving most of the season as an effective starter has done. Will a mid-table club with a limited transfer budget really pony up a significant transfer fee for a player with yet another injury? Could Arsenal justify counting on him as a key cog for next season or signing him to a contract extension given his propensity to be out injured? What happens next with Wilshere was always going to be fascinating but this latest injury just adds an additional layer of complexity what what was already a pretty complex situation.

Bournemouth loanee Jack Wilshere has been ruled out until the end of the season with a broken leg.

The England international was forced off last weekend during his side's class with Chelsea. He underwent scans to assess the extent of the damage, and according to Sky Sports, they revealed that he has a crack in his left fibula, which is part of the bone structure of the calf. The injury resembles the same one which sidelined him for the vast majority of the 2015/16 season. The injury spells the end of his season, which saw him appear 27 times for the Cherries. His career is now at a crossroads and it is unclear where he will be plying his trade when August comes around again.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, currently on loan at Bournemouth, is failing in his bid to resurrect his career at the Vitality Stadium.

Wilshere signed for Eddie Howe's men on a season long loan back in the summer. Initially he proved to be an important fulcrum in the side and avoided injury better than he has done in years. However, he has lacked end product in his time on the south coast, with two assists and no goals to his name. Furthermore, doubts a are forming over whether or not he has a future with Bournemouth. Arsenal will no doubt require a large fee, and questions are being asked about whether Howe wants to keep Wilshere, who frustrated him last weekend by refusing to stay on the pitch after picking up an injury. He walked off, leaving ten teammates battling a rampant Spurs 11. It seems Wilshere is yet to find the formula to bring the accolades promised by his talent when he emerged on the scene.

It was an afternoon AFC Bournemouth would soon like to forget as they were overmatched by Tottenham from start to finish and Jack Wilshere left early with an ankle injury as the Cherries went on to lose, 4-0.

It is hard to imagine any club going into White Hart Lane and getting a positive result these days, but the Cherries showed no signs of even attempting an upset. They only had the ball 30% of the time in the opening half, failing to register a shot on target in the first half, while only hitting the target once in the second, which was saved easily by Hugo Lloris. Junior Stanislas was given a chance in the starting XI but failed to make an impact. The defense, which usually cause the Cherries their problems, had circles run around them, as they allowed the opponent to score three goals or more for the 12th time this season. Four or five points should seal safety for Bournemouth, but they need to play more inspired than they did today.

Eddie Howe believes Mondays defeat at the hands of Manchester City at the Vitality Stadium hinged on injuries to Jack Wilshere and Simon Francis who were forced off during a frenetic opening forty-five minutes.

Speaking after the 2-0 loss, the Cherries manager revealed: "Losing both players was a real blow. We reorganised and had a go, but ultimately, they were too good." Francis suffered a recurrence of the hamstring problem which has hampered him in recent weeks while Wilshere appeared to jar his ankle as he stretched to block David Silva’s shot just before half-time. "We lost our captain and player of Jack's calibre - it obviously hinders any tactical changes we can make which is a real shame," said Howe before adding. "Hopefully they are nothing serious." With no FA Cup duty, Bournemouth can enjoy a rare weekend off, before heading to West Brom when the Premier League resumes in game week 26.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has eased fears that the club could lose playmaker Jack Wilshere back to Arsenal in January in a recall as part of the loan agreement between the teams.

After the news about Santi Cazorla's lengthy layoff until March emerged, heads of many swivelled to the England midfielder rebuilding his career on the south coast. Wilshere has played well for the Cherries this term, usually in an attacking midfielder role however he is yet to find the net. He is the team leader in terms of shot assists on 18 but is yet to register an assist either.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere who is currently on loan at Bournemouth is unsure where his future club is.

Wilshere, who joined Arsenal aged nine, has gone to the south coast Cherries in order to recover his form and fitness following a litany of injury setbacks which have stalled his promising career. The 24 year old has recently completed two consecutive 90 minutes for Bournemouth, his first time being physically able to do that for years. His form has also picked up with a promising record in terms of chances created and he has been unlucky not to score yet too, hitting the post on numerous occasions. His contract at the Emirates expires in 2018 however this does not commit him after his horizons have been broadened.

AFC Bournemouth continue to build on a solid record at home, becoming the first Premier League side to keep Tottenham from scoring this season as the two sides play to a goalless draw.

The Cherries showed today that any opponent visiting their ground will have a tough opponent to deal with, as they played a composed and passionate style of football. They nearly scored an early opener when Charlie Daniels had a open shot in the box from a corner kick but Hugo Lloris made a big save. They showed signs of slowing up their tempo as the first half drew to a close but found another gear in the second half and looked the more threatening side to score. Jack Wilshere had good moments and bad moments but, perhaps more importantly, was able to play the full 90 minutes for the first time this season. Andrew Surman was a late scratch as the midfielder was struck with an illness. Eddie Howe continues to build upon a strong reputation, getting six goals from his players against a poor side last week then an impressive defensive display the following week against a solid Tottenham side.

Bournemouth is already making their hopes to sign Jack Wilshere to a permanent deal known at the end of his season-long loan.

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn said he wouldn't rule anything out at the end of the season after the former Arsenal prodigy arrived on Deadline Day. He has gone on to play in five of the club's Premier League matches to start the season. "The best we can do is integrate Jack into the team and help him fulfill what he wants. Whether or not we will go beyond a season, I think everything is possible. You have to be realistic and Jack may well consider his home to be back at Arsenal...But if there is a possibility and Eddie Howe decides that he's somebody he wants to keep it will be up to him."

AFC Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn has stated that the club are open to making Jack Wilshere's loan at the club permanent.

Wilshere joined the Cherries from Arsenal on loan in a bid to get his career back on track after consistent set backs in recent years. He was no longer guaranteed game time so joined Eddie Howe's outfit to build fitness, confidence and form back. Wilshere has so far made three appearances for the club, showing some glimpses of his class in the process. However, he has not done enough to prevent the club's poor start to the season which finds them languishing in 15th position in the table. He hit the crossbar in last weekend's 1-0 win over Everton after a Coleman block stopped him scoring his first Bournemouth goal. He is yet to play 90 minutes for the club.

Eddie Howe has finalized a season-long loan for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

This is a huge deal for the Cherries. If Wilshere can stay healthy then he's a massive improvement over anyone that the Cherries currently have in midfield. He could conceivably boost the performances of Callum Wilson, Jordan Ibe and Josh King as well as producing strong statistics of his own.

There hasn't been any confirmation of a deal from either side but reports have Jack Wilshere leaning toward a loan deal with Bournemouth over Crystal Palace or Roma.

The Cherries need a creative force in the center of the park and the word is that Eddie Howe has impressed Jack Wilshere to the point that he is leaning toward joining the south coast club over a variety of other suitors. Wilshere will certainly play as often as he is fit if he signs on with the Cherries and will certainly feel the pressure of trying to keep them out of the relegation battle. His expectations for playing time and productivity go up exponentially if this deal goes through although the ever-present risk of injury will still remain with Wilshere.

With the Arsenal midfield incredibly crowded, Jack Wilshere may leave for the season on loan.

The conversation seems to be at the general level right now as in "Arsenal have told Jack Wilshere he can go out on loan" rather than there being a ton of specifics. Roma has been mentioned as having some interest but definitely nothing concrete. If Wilshere heads down the table in the Premier League then he could be a valuable addition to a fantasy squad in formats with peripheral stats. Jumping too early could be a mistake though as he could just as easily end up outside of the Premier League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere will not be ready for the club's season opener on Sunday.

Said Wenger in his pre-match press conference: "Jack is doing well, but he will be short for Sunday. He is back in training but will not be completely ready for Sunday." The 24-year-old looks to still be recovering from the aftereffects of a broken leg that caused him to miss most of last season, although the midfielder was a part of England's Euro 2016 team this summer. While he has returned to training, Wenger didn't want to risk him against Liverpool this weekend with plenty of options. Expect Granit Xhaka to make his Premier League debut with a start in central midfield.

Jack Wilshere has been omitted from the Arsenal squad travelling to Scandinavia this weekend because of injury.

Following the win over Chivas last Sunday, manager Arsène Wenger confirmed Wilshere has "a slight patella problem" although "he should be with us on tour." However, when the 25-man squad was announced on Thursday afternoon, there was no place for the Arsenal midfielder. Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey have been included as Wenger looks to fast track their return to fitness but Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil won’t be back in full training until next week. Gabriel Paulista is over his recent bout of tonsillitis leaving Rob Holding and Callum Chambers to fight it out to see who partners the Brazilian in the heart of the Gunners defence.
