Jack Wilshere

Jack Wilshere has had his West Ham contract terminated by mutual consent after he played just 19 times in two seasons

However, the English midfielder said he was not given the opportunities to feature regularly at West Ham United, in spite of being fully fit and that he is confident that he can continue playing at the highest level.

Wilshere, 28, joined West Ham from Arsenal on a three-year deal in 2018 hoping to resurrect his injury-plagued career but said on Monday that he had agreed to the termination of his contract with the Premier League club.

Wilshere, who made 197 appearances for Arsenal and won the FA Cup twice – in 2014 and 2015 – said that he hoped to make an announcement about the next stage of his career shortly.

“In spite of all my best efforts and intentions, it has not worked out as I expected.

“I have been fully fit for a large period of time at the club, including over the course of the last eight months – training hard every day – but unfortunately have not been given the opportunity to play.“Although of course I am frustrated that I was not fully able to showcase what I am capable of at West Ham.

“I remain convinced I can still contribute at the very top of the game,” Wilshere, who has been capped 34 times by England, tweeted.
