Jack Wilshere says he's ready to turn out for Arsenal this weekend against Norwich City.

The Daily Mail says Wilshere has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger he is ready to end his 15 month injury nightmare.

The 20-year-old played 90 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly defeat to Chelsea at the Gunners' London Colney HQ on Wednesday.

It was Wilshere's third match this month after two outings for the club's Under 21 side and the England international is now convinced he is ready to make his long-awaited return to the Arsenal first-team set up.
