Newcastle United target Jack Wilshere has hinted he is ready to leave Arsenal this January after he admitted he doesn’t feel he can break into Arsene Wenger’s first team plans.
The injury-prone midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Bournemouth, has failed to establish himself as a first team regular since his return to the Emirates, sparking rumours he could be set to leave his boyhood club after over a decade.
It is understood Wilshere is seeking regular football in an attempt to force his way back into Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of the World Cup in Russia next summer.
The midfielder already has a number of suitors, including Newcastle and West Ham United – whom Wilshere supported as a boy – and the midfielder’s latest comments will give both sides hope they can land the talented star after the New Year.
“We have got a month until then and me and the boss will probably have a conversation before then and see what happens because obviously when January comes I have only got six months left on my contract,” he is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.
“We will see what happens between now and then, I will talk to the boss. We have known each other for long enough and we have a good relationship where we can be honest with each other so I’m sure we will be and then we will go from there.
“I’ve said before that I want to stay here and play. I’ve been at this club for years. I don’t have to say how much this club means to me, how good they have been to me. But at the same time as well, the boss has got to be honest with me and I’m sure he will.”
