Jack Wilshere will endure gruelling double pre-season training sessions as Arsenal prepare him for his long-awaited return.

The midfielder missed the whole of last season with ankle and foot problems before undergoing surgery to clear up a tendinitis complaint in his left knee.

Once the 20-year-old's rehabilitation from his latest surgery is complete, he will embark on a series of double summer training sessions designed to get him up to speed in time for the new season.
