Wilshere thanked Bournemouth and manager Eddie Howe, as well as all the backroom staff and players that he encountered during his season-long loan spell with the Cherries.
Although his time down south was tainted slightly due to another hairline fracture to his fibula during his final couple of months there, the 25-year-old managed to stay pretty fit for most of the season, which is something he’s not been able to do at Arsenal for a long, long time.
The midfielder made 27 appearances in total and bagged himself two assists.
With just one year left on Wilshere’s current deal with the Gunners, there’s been plenty of speculation over whether the England international will in fact remain at his boyhood club or leave this summer.
Although no one knows where he’ll be come September, it seems Bournemouth, who were one of the first teams to be linked with a permanent move for him, aren’t an option.
