Wilshere delaying Arsenal contract talk until summer

Wilshere glad to get out of his 'comfort zone'

Jack Wilshere says helping Bournemouth avoid relegation is his main focus and that he is not in a rush to commit his future to Arsenal.

The 25-year-old moved to the Vitality Stadium on a season-long loan in the summer after Arsene Wenger felt unable to guarantee the midfielder regular football at the Emirates.

Since then the Frenchman has reiterated his belief that the England international, whose current Gunners deal ends in July 2018, has a future in North London.

“I’m not thinking about my future,” Wilshere told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve got a year left at Arsenal and as soon as the season ends I’ll sit down and I’ll think about it.

“But my main concern at the moment is trying to keep Bournemouth in this league because no matter what happens next year, if I’m here if I’m not, if I’m at Arsenal – whatever – you know no one wants a relegation next to their name.

“You don’t want to be involved in a team that got relegated so that’s what we’re doing now, trying to put Bournemouth in a good position and at the end of the season I’ll have a think about it.”

Bournemouth, for whom Wilshere has made 24 appearances this season, are currently six points clear of the relegation zone in 14th place.
