Jack Wilshere was unable to complete a move to Serie B side Como 1907 because of his non-EU passport.
When people talk about Brexit’s impact they generally speak about it impacting players coming into the Premier League, but it has also stopped Jack Wilshere finding a new club. Funny how it works both ways.
Wilshere has been in Italy, training with Como, as he looks for a new home following his release by Bournemouth. Still only 29, Wilshere is not ready to give up on his playing days just yet.
Unable to find a suitable club in England, Wilshere was happy to move abroad, but now that the UK are no longer in the EU, things get much more complicated.

That tweet reads, “Hi Jack
“Jack Wilshere is training with the @Como_1907 by Jack Gattuso in these hours.
“But it cannot be registered in #SerieBKT because of the non-EU passport.”
Wilshere signed for Bournemouth in January after being released by West Ham in October and spending a few months without a club.
The midfielder made 18 appearances for Bournemouth in his second spell there, starting nine and playing the full 90 just once. He scored two and grabbed one assist.
Wilshere didn’t suffer one injury during his short spell back on the south coast but was released at the end of the season anyway.
