West Ham signs Wilshere from Arsenal

West Ham United are delighted to announce the signing of Jack Wilshere on a three-year contract.

The midfielder will try to revive his career and earn an England recall after leaving Arsenal as a free agent this month.

In a conversation with the West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini the midfielder now looks set to stay in England by signing a three-year contract worth £100,000 per week.

Wilshere could play as one of the three midfielders in front of defence if Pellegrini decides to utilise the 4-3-3 system he used at Manchester City.

"It feels good, it feels special", said Wilshere on the West Ham website.

Speaking after signing for West Ham, the 26-year-old said he feels good joining his childhood club.

The 28-year-old joined West Ham from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2015, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £7 million, and he has gone on to rack up an impressive 21 goals and 11 assists in 90 appearances for the east London outfit. "It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing".

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has only one real injury concern heading into Wednesday's World Cup semi-final in Russian Federation . So for us we can feel the energy and support from home and it is a very special feeling and a privilege for us'.

The midfielder grew up supporting West Ham and while it would have presumably been a hard decision to end his 17-year association with Arsenal, moving on is what's best for his playing career.

As such, according to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, West Ham want to wrap up the signing of the attacking midfielder over the next 24 to 36 hours.

The club captain will likely cost the West Ham hierarchy a chunk more than their initial offer given his lengthy contract and central role at the club under manager Rafa Benitez.

The head coach told the press: "Jack is a player with excellent technical ability, combined with great energy and commitment, and has proven his quality both in the Premier League and at global level".

Wilshere made 125 Premier League appearances under Wenger at the Gunners during a 10-year spell before being told he wasn't part of new manager Unai Emery's plans.

"On the biggest stage, he has shown that he has game-changing abilities, as well as having the creativity and intelligence to make a real difference to our squad".
