Ex-West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere: I am open to Europe or wherever

Released West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere says he wants to join a club where he'll play regularly.

Wilshere is a free agent after terminating his contract with the Irons.

He told BBC Sport: "It is important to find a club where I am going to play, be an important player and be happy. I don't want to rush into anything. It has to be the right team in the right country.

"I am open to Europe or wherever.

"I am the type of player who wants to have the ball. I understand there is another side to the game and I enjoy that but I would like to be in a team who has the ball.

"I am not naive enough to think I am going to sign for a club and play straight away. There is a process to it. You have to train with the team, get to know your team-mates, maybe come off the bench a couple of times. I want to get that process going but it has to be the right thing."
