Astonishing claim Wilshere could earn new deal

An astonishing claim from the Daily Mail that Jack Wilshere could earn himself a Hammers contract extension comes on the back of a report that he is now fully recovered from his troublesome pelvic injury and will be fit to return for West Ham once the season recommences.

The story says that the break in proceedings has allowed the injury to heal and that he is now fully recovered from the problem which of course follows various others in his troubled London Stadium career.

If that’s true it’s the story of the year but it fails to mention that after so long out of action it’s highly unlikely that he will be back to anything near match fitness.

It adds that the news will come as a “huge boost” for David Moyes and insists that Wilshere is  now ready to play a full part in the final games should they get played.

And in one of the most optimistic sentences written maybe it declares: “A successful run in the team could yet see the Hammers try to renegotiate an extension with the former England international or, alternatively, some impressive performances could attract suitors into taking advantage of his contractual situation.”

The second part of that is the best part from a Hammers point of vie because – apart from anything else – it’s difficult to see him replacing any of Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek , Pablo Fornals and Moyes favourites Mark Noble or Robert Snodgrass.

The reality is that if the Irons can find a way of a mutual parting of the ways they will take it although it’s always been unlikely that the player will be ready to take a cut on his highly lucrative.

Nobody disputes that a fully fit Wilshere is a big asset but recovery from yet another long injury looks like too little too late as far as the Irons are concerned.

  1. Like you say Hugh this is amazing and would be another mistake by whoever thinks his worth another deal other than selling him ASP. This club needs to wake up and I’m hoping red bull and supporters put pressure on these owners who are after Ashley at Newcastle must be the most unpopular board in the premier league. They have had their chances to show they are capable of running a football club and shown they are not. Great at businesses other than that but so out of touch on players and contracts given out to them. This has caused us to bounce around relegation not top four or six and it’s time to change. Also this season with the medical people saying social distancing is here for at least many months until vaccine is found then it’s time the football authorities wake up and null and void season. As for sure even behind the stupid suggestion of behind closed doors it’s impossible to play football with masks and six feet apart playing this game. Must admit also Liverpool get their just deserts too after fans killing juventus fans at hysel and stopping us and others playing in Europe too which has been conviently forgotten. Let’s all conquer this virus and make it the only task to finish this year .

  2. OMG …. unbelievable unless it is West Ham !! No other club would give him time of day .

  3. Sounds like speculation at best. The fact is nobody knows if he is match fit or ready for a run in the team, and previously the issue was his fragility and inability to stay fit. He will be lucky to see this contract out and I believe his top level day’s have gone.
