Jack Wilshere joined West Ham United back in 2018 as a free agent and back then, it really did seem like a sentimental move but also one that could potentially revive his career.
Of course, the now 28-year-old midfielder has been struggling with injuries throughout his time in football and unfortunately, the same unlucky trend continued with the Hammers as well.
For that reason, he has made only 16 Premier League appearances across two years and has only played 35 minutes of football since last October. Needless to say, this is not good enough. It was not good enough back at Arsenal and it’s surely not going to cut it at West Ham either.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise that according to TalkSPORT, the club are already negotiating a contract termination with the midfielder and it’s looking increasingly likely they will part ways this summer.
Of course, Wilshere still has a year left on his current deal but it’s pretty safe to say that he won’t exactly see it through.
David Moyes is looking to free up some funds and ease the wage bill so he can sign new players so this is a move that ultimately makes sense for both parties.
Wilshere needs to restore his fitness and then find a club where the physical demand is not as high. Unfortunately, it was not to be at West Ham but at 28 years of age, he still has a lot to offer if he can finally find stability and continuity on the pitch.
It does seem like a sad ending to a story that was supposed to be much better than that but this conclusion is for the best. Wilshere loves football and is giving his all but unfortunately, the injuries are too much.
For that reason, it makes sense for West Ham to pull the trigger.
