Jack Wilshere announces he will leave Arsenal

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini

While it has been widely expected that Wilshere would sign a new deal, the English midfielder took to social media on Tuesday night in an emotional post to announce the departure.

He has been in negotiations over a deal with the club for some months, but has called time on his career at the Emirates with a statement on Instagram.

Jack Wilshere confirms that he is leaving Arsenal when his contract expires next month following talks with Unai Emery.

Emery is going to makeover the midfield, with talk of Sampdoria's Lucas Torreira potentially being the Gunners' next signing after Bernd Leno.

The new Arsenal man's record was broken by Timon Wellenreuther in 2015, when he played in goal against Real Madrid.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also important members of the squad having performed well since joining the north London outfit in January.

I doubt he would be interested and I certainly can't see Jack Wilshere being a major asset to Newcastle United.

However, Dean and other senators stressed that the government is taking a very cautious, prudent approach to this historic change. The Trudeau government rejected that amendment and senators voted 45-35 against insisting on it.

Leverkusen sporting director Jonas Boldt said: "We brought Bernd in 2011 as a very young keeper and immediately gave him great responsibility".

The 26-year-old is newly appointed Arsenal manager Unai Emery's second high profile signing of the summer after Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer.

A player who has endured several lengthy injury lay-offs, Wilshere spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Bournemouth, before returning to Arsenal for the recently concluded campaign.

"Given this, I feel I have no option but to pursue other opportunities in order to progress my career on the pitch".

Gazidis also offered his sympathies towards those who left the club, thanking them for their years of service: "All these people have played a huge part in the club's success and development over many years". Twice a victor of the Victory Shield with England youth sides, Jack has made 34 appearances for his country.

The statement concluded: "Thank you Jack for your contribution and the fantastic memories. Good luck in the future".
