Life at Bournemouth got off to a very decent start for Jack Wilshere on Saturday as he emerged from the bench to help his new colleagues to victory over West Bromwich Albion.
And the Arsenal midfielder, on loan at the Cherries for the season, is happy to put thoughts about his future with the Gunners on hold, according to the Mail.
It reports that although Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger plans to discuss a new deal with Wilshere around Christmas, the England international is content to wait and see.
Quoting Wilshere as saying “I don’t really want to talk about that at the moment,” the Mail adds that his aim is “to get as many games as possible” and that he is “a Bournemouth player now in my head.”
Wilshere, who could return to the Emirates with only a year left on his Arsenal deal if successful talks fail to materialise, says he wants to “help Bournemouth get as high up the league as possible” and aims to play more than 25 games for the club this season.
And perhaps ominously for Arsenal, the Mail quotes him as saying that he is “not really thinking about contracts or anything.”
