West Ham signs Wilshere from Arsenal

West Ham signs Wilshere from Arsenal”

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has joined West Ham on a three-year deal and says he has moved to the club he supported as a boy.

Speaking after signing for West Ham, the 26-year-old said he feels good joining his childhood club.

"I hope that, next week, or before we finish July, the fans of West Ham will have good news", he told the club's official website .

"I think I must have been about six or seven, my whole family were West Ham fans, I was a West Ham fan, still have a soft spot for them of course".

The England global put pen-to-paper with the Hammers and will fly out to Switzerland to link up with Manuel Pellegrini's squad at their pre-season training camp in Bad Ragaz.

"Jack Wilshere basically, it's the early stages of retirement going to West Ham".

"Many people know that I've had a special bond with this Club growing up".

So a move to Wolves, an up and coming side with the ambition and the backing to make a real splash in the top flight, could have been exactly the move to revitalise Wilshere's career. Talks over a new contract had been progressing for a number of months, but it was said to be a lack of assurances over regular playing time that convinced Wilshere to leave the Emirates. The England global signs for The Hammers on a free transfer after his Arsenal contract expired earlier this month, and leaves the North Londoners after 10 years playing for the senior side.

However, the 28-year-old failed to get into Gareth Southgate's final 23, despite scoring 35 times in 77 appearances for his country.

The midfielder missed out on making the England squad for this summer's World Cup, but he will be looking to hit the ground running at the start of a new chapter.
