'I'm an Arsenal man' - Free agent Wilshere says he would never join Tottenham


Jack Wilshere West Ham

Free agent midfielder Jack Wilshere has insisted he would never be able to move to Tottenham.

Though he marked himself as one of England's most promising talents, Wilshere did not completely fulfill his potential with Arsenal due to a host of injury issues.

He joined West Ham in 2018 but his time with the Hammers was also blighted by injuries, as he managed only 19 appearances over two seasons –including just six Premier League starts.

West Ham ended Wilshere's£100,000-a-week contract early in October, making the 28-year-old a free agent.

Though Wilshere is still without a club, he told the Super 6 podcast that his Arsenal ties would make any move to their north London rivals impossible.

When asked if he would ever consider a move to Tottenham, Wilshere responded: "I love head coach Jose Mourinho, I think he's an unbelievable coach... But I couldn't do it."

Wilshere went on to express doubt over whether he'd ever be in a position to turn down an approach from Spurs.

"They wouldn't have me!" he said. "But I don't think I could do it. It's not as if Arsenal got rid of me and kicked me out and there is bad feeling, they offered me a deal and I wanted to try something else. I'm an Arsenal man."

Wilshere spoke about his future with the BBCin October, saying that he is training with friends in a local park while waiting to decide his next move.

The midfielder said he is open to playing in a number of different countries and insisted he still has plenty of football left in his legs.

"It is important to find a club where I am going to play, be an important player and be happy. I don't want to rush into anything. It has to be the right team in the right country," Wilshere said. "I am open to Europe or wherever.
