Former Hammer forced to look stateside

Former Hammer Jack Wilshere is reported to be considering a potential switch to the USA to play his football after the cancellation of his £100,000 per week deal with West Ham.

The Daily Mirror say 28-year-old free agent is looking Stateside after not getting any offers from the UK.

Rangers and Arsenal have both been linked to the former West Ham player but neither had made any formal moves and he remains in limbo with the domestic seasons well underway.

Manuel Pellegrini signed Jack Wilshere as a free agent  on a three-year contract worth £5.2m per year in the summer of 2018 but he managed just 19 appearances as a Hammer after suffering further injury setbacks.
He is reported to have received around £3m in compensation for ripping up his Wets Ham contract receiving 85% of his remaining wages despite claiming he was fit and just wasn’t being played by David Moyes.

  1. Seriously, where else would he get the chance to play???
    His days of playing competitive football came to an end well before he hit the jackpot with his move to West Ham. Thanks Pellegrini.
    He’s had loads to say recently, since walking away with his bag of swag, but I’d be very surprised if he did play at any meaningful level ever again.

    • Good riddance. Overrated player with a big trap – he would’ve caused disruption in the ranks if he was still in the WHU dressing room. Perhaps that other thief Pellegrjni will sign him at whatever team is is ruining now.
