West Ham midfielder Wilshere offered fresh England chance by Southgate

West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere has been offered a fresh England chance.

England coach Gareth Southgate has refused to close the door on Wilshere adding to his 34 caps - saying he's keeping close tabs on the West Ham midfielder.

Southgate said: “I haven't spoken to Jack, but we watch all the games and we watch all of the players and we'll select on their performances.

“But the door is definitely not closed to anybody, because with just 65 English players playing in the Premier League, why would we rule out the potential of anybody?

“At the moment it is worth me looking at and investing in some of the younger players available, but the key for Jack is to play well.

“I've watched two of his first three games for West Ham and it's the same for Jack as it is for every other player.

"They have got to be playing well because the competition is high."
