Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is stepping up his rehab from ankle surgery.

Wilshere went under the knife six weeks ago after suffering a stress fracture in his right ankle during the summer.

"As I said had 6 week X-ray earlier and all going well," he wrote on his Twitter page.

"I can start to work a bit harder now."

The news will come as welcome relief for Arsenal after their early-season form was undermined by a rash of injuries.
