DONE DEAL: Bournemouth sign Arsenal midfielder Wilshere

Jack Wilshere has joined AFC Bournemouth on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old midfielder has signed with the Cherries from Arsenal after demanding a loan move away from North London.

Wilshere missed most of last season with a leg injury and is determined to gain regular minutes which was unlikely to occur following the arrival of Granit Xhaka at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal's official website read: “Jack Wilshere has joined Bournemouth on loan for the 2016/17 season.

“We all wish Jack a successful season with the Cherries."

Bournemouth also posted a video of the deal taking place:
