While Wilshere will never lose his love for the club he joined as a nine-year-old, he is throwing himself heart and soul into his loan move to the south coast.
He revealed: “I'm moving down here – Bournemouth showed interest in me, were desperate to get me, and I'm not going to then stay in London and travel down every day.
“That wouldn't be fair to myself or the team because I am trying to give myself the best opportunity to play week in and week out. So I'm in a hotel at the minute, and I'm looking for a place.
"The fans have been great to me since I've been down here. You know the welcome I've had, even just walking around Bournemouth everyone has said 'hi'.
“When I came here before the match there was a great reception and I am grateful for that because I think as a player you need to feel welcomed, it gives you confidence."
