Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has rejoined Bournemouth on a short-term contract until the end of this season.
Bournemouth confirmed Wilshere’s signing on its official website on Monday.
“Jack Wilshere has rejoined Bournemouth with a deal until the end of the season,” the club stated.
“Former Arsenal and West Ham midfielder Wilshere has been training with the first team to stay fit after leaving the Hammers in October.
The 29-year-old England midfielder previously played 27 games for the Cherries during a one-season loan from Arsenal in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
“Wilshere is eligible to be part of the Bournemouth team for Tuesday’s championship game in Derby County.”
Speaking about his passage to the Championship side, Wilshere said: “From the moment I walked in the door three weeks ago, it felt natural and like I was never out.
“I know a lot of the players and staff here and I am pleased that they allowed me to train initially, and then it just moved on from there.
“I have been impressed by the coaching staff, the way they work and the club’s ambitions to return to the Premier League.
“We all share the same ambitions and I am eager to play my role in helping to achieve them.”
And according to Jason Tindall, manager of Bournemouth, in a talk with BBC Radio Solent: “We are delighted that he remembers,” said the manager of Bournemouth.
“There is no question about the quality of Jack. In his own words, he feels like he has ‘unfinished business’ here and it was a large part of our most successful time.
“I am very satisfied with what I have seen since he trained with us.”
Wilshere reaches Bournemouth third in the table and four points behind second-placed Swansea.
