West Ham sign Jack Wilshere

Paper Round West Ham weigh up shock Payet return

The 26-year-old has now penned a deal with Arsenal's London rivals West Ham United, signing a three-year contract.

"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".

Hampered by injuries in the past, the England global made 20 league appearances in the 2017-18 season but now starts a fresh chapter of his career. Wilshere, who supported West Ham as a boy, will now fly out to Switzerland to join his new team-mates on their pre-season training camp in Bad Ragaz.

He said, "It feels good, it feels special". "The manager [convinced me],..."

West Ham had hoped to sign Anderson for around £35 million but have had to increase their offer. Not many clubs could fill it week in, week out, and West Ham do.

West Ham appointed former Villarreal, Real Madrid and Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini as manager earlier in the summer, replacing David Moyes.

Wilshere made 197 appearances for the Gunners and helped them win back-to-back FA Cups in 2014 and 2015.

Wilshere, who has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, had been out on loan to Bournemouth before returning to Arsenal in an attempt to win a place in England's World Cup squad.

Pellegrini, who has already signed another former Arsenal player Polish goakeeper Lukasz Fabianski and young French defender Issa Diop for a reported £12 million ($16 million, 13.5million euros), is on the brink of bringing in Ukrainian global forward Andriy Yarmolenko, who will cost a club record fee of about 20m euros from German side Borussia Dortmund.
