Jack Wilshere joins West Ham on three-year deal

Jack Wilshere joins West Ham on three-year deal

Wilshere became a free agent when it was decided that Arsenal would not be offering him a new contract.

Should Balbuena, Anderson and Yarmolenko all complete moves to East London, it would take West Ham's number of signings up to seven, after the Hammers snapped up former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere yesterday.

"I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

"My family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing".

West Ham have already signed goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, centre-back Issa Diop and right-back Ryan Fredericks, and Pellegrini has confirmed that he intends to reshape his squad. Let us know in the comment section below.

West Ham's busy start to the transfer window looks set to continue, with the Hammers reportedly closing in on moves for Lazio's Felipe Anderson and Corinthians defender Fabian Balbuena.


Wilshere's career has been hobbled by injuries and he was willing to take a pay cut to stay at a club he had been with for 17 years but Wenger's departure left his fate in Emery's hands.

Among Wilshere's first objectives at his new club will be to play his way back into the England squad, having missed out on the 23-man panel for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"They called me not every day but a lot of times telling me to come here", he said.

"The fans, of course - everyone knows how big West Ham's fanbase is - and especially in this new Stadium".

Wilshere didn't make the England squad for the World Cup having not played for the Three Lions since the loss to Iceland although he was in one squad in the meantime.
