Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is not thinking about renewing his Arsenal contract at the moment and is fully focused on AFC Bournemouth.
Wilshere joined Bournemouth on the last day of the transfer window until the end of the current campaign and he wants to focus on his new club.
Wenger recently revealed Arsenal are planning to offer the midfielder a new contract and claims he expects talks to commence in December but Wilshere wants to put any talk of a new contract out of his mind and focus on helping Bournemouth do well this season.
“I don’t want to talk about that at the moment. I’m a Bournemouth player now in my head. I want to help Bournemouth get as high up the league as possible and also for myself I want to play 25 or 30 games.
“I don’t care what people say. The decision was down to me and it was best for my career. I could have sat at Arsenal and just come on now and then. The manager couldn’t promise me I would play now.
“That wasn’t good enough for me. I want to play week in and week out. Bournemouth have given me the opportunity to do that.
“I’ve missed almost 18 months of football and I haven’t played in the Premier League week in and week out for a good time. I miss the Premier League.
Wilshere’s move to the Dean Court took many by surprise, former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes even thinks the move is a step down but the midfielder has revealed it is the right place for him to continue his development and believes Eddie Howe is the right man to help him get his career back on track.
“I spoke with the manager [Eddie Howe] and as soon as I met with him I knew I wanted to work with him, to be my coach. It wasn’t what he said, it was the way he conducted himself.
“And after being here for 10 days, seeing him on the training pitch, he can definitely improve me. He’s a great coach, he’s honest with you. For me he’s the perfect coach to come and work for.”
The England international has played just few games in the last couple of seasons and has fallen off the radar as a result. A move to Bournemouth is expected to help kick start his career and it would be better he focuses on his time at the Dean Court.
