Ex-Arsenal star Wilshere looking for next step after confirming AGF departure

Jack Wilshere is looking at the 'next step' after officially departing Danish club AGF.

Arsenal have reportedly held talks with their former midfielder as they look to fill their vacant Under-23 and Under-18 head coach positions.

Speaking on Instagram, Wilshere said: "My time at @agffodbold has come to an end. Myself and the club have mutually agreed it's best for me to move on. I would like to thank everybody at AGF for the support and confidence they gave me from day 1.

"The club showed trust in me that not many others were willing to give. Although results were hard to come by the fans support of me and the team was unbelievable. Thank you guys for welcoming me into your club and city. I wish you all the best in the future. Personally I am considering all of my options."

The Danish Superliga club released a statement saying: "AGF and Jack Wilshere have agreed not to extend the partnership.

"In the spring, AGF benefited from Jack Wilshere's great footballing and human qualities on a deal that expired at the end of June.

"There has subsequently been a dialogue on continuing the cooperation, but after careful consideration, the parties have jointly come to the conclusion that the agreement will not be extended."
