Ex-Arsenal ace Jack Wilshere leaning towards MLS transfer after contract at West Ham was torn up

JACK WILSHERE is reportedly leaning towards the MLS after he agreed to cancel his West Ham contract this month.

The ex-Arsenal midfielder is seeking to rebuild his career and had expressed an interest in LaLiga or Serie A.

But he would now prefer a move to the USA, according to the Mirror.

The 28-year-old and West Ham mutually agreed to cancel his contract earlier this month.

It was believed to be worth around £100,000-a-week.

Wilshere had been at the London Stadium since 2018 when he moved on a free after his Arsenal contract expired.

Injuries limited the ex-England international to just 19 appearances for West Ham.

Although he claimed he was fit and ready for selection for his last nine months at the Hammers – suggesting he was simply not picked by David Moyes.

Wilshere featured in just one game for the East London side this campaign – the 5-1 win against Hull in the Carabao Cup on September 22.

And despite the disappointing way his West Ham career turned out, most fans wished him well on his departure.

The boyhood Hammers fan was recently spotted training in a park as his search for a new club goes on.

And speaking after he left West Ham, he said: "I'm open to anything really. I think I want to try something different, I'm leaning towards that.

“Maybe LaLiga, Italy, something a little bit different and not many English players have done.

"I was in this position when I left Arsenal. What I learnt from that is take your time and make sure it's right for you.

“I’m not saying I have regrets going to West Ham because in my head things would have turned out differently but that's football – but this time I'm going take my time and find something that suits me.

“I just want to be happy and be playing football again. Honestly, I can’t tell you the last time, probably when I signed for West Ham, the first three games before I picked up an injury.

"That was probably the last time I was happy playing football.

“I just want to be happy, going back on the pitch, get a smile on my face, play 20-30 games a season where I'm an important player for a team.

“Obviously it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to and I was frustrated about that but that's football."

Earlier this week, Wilshere leaped to the defence of former team-mate Mesut Ozil saying he's 'Arsenal's best player'.
