England snub sparked Wilshere.
Jack Wilshere explains his decision to leave Arsenal for Bournemouth on loan and outlines his plans for the future
Jack Wilshere admits being left out of Sam Allardyce’s England squad was the spur he needed to join Bournemouth on loan from Arsenal.
The 24-year-old, who joined the Gunners aged nine, has played the full 90 minutes of the Cherries’ last two Premier League games after a series of lengthy injuries prevented him from doing the same for Arsenal for two years.
The midfielder played more games for England than he did Arsenal last season, but told Sky Sports News HQ his axe from Allardyce’s only squad as manager of the national team in late August forced him to accept his situation.
