Ex-Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere explains taking time on next move

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has explained he's taking his time over his next move.

Wilshere has revealed playing for a 'smaller club' like West Ham didn't 'suit' him as he confirmed he had held transfer talks over a January move.

The former Arsenal star, 28, is currently a free agent after his £100,000-a-week deal at the Hammers was terminated by mutual consent in the summer.

Wilshere told Sky Sports: “I'm in a position now where I can make a decision based on footballing reasons.

"[I can] pick the team that I think I could fit into.

“I will have a look at the team, the players, the league they're in and how the manager wants to play.

"I don't think being at a smaller club like West Ham really suited me.

"There have been a few talks with clubs, but nothing that I have ever fancied quite yet."
