Jack Wilshere will bounce back from new injury setback - Eddie Howe

After another injury setback, Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes discuss what the future has in store for Jack Wilshere.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said he has no doubt that Jack Wilshere can recover from his latest injury setback.

The midfielder, on a season-long loan from Arsenal, will play no further part this season after suffering a fractured leg during last weekend's 4-0 defeat at Tottenham.

It is the latest in a series of injury problems that have restricted the 25-year-old's progress for club and country.

Howe, though, believes Wilshere, who made 27 league appearances for Bournemouth, can overcome another hurdle on his footballing journey.

"He is naturally down and disappointed he is going to miss the rest of the season, but he is a positive guy and will come back from this, I have no doubt," Howe said.

"His loan spell for us has been hugely beneficial, and hopefully Jack would feel the same way.

Jack Wilshere's loan spell at Bournemouth has been cut short by injury.

"I am not going to speak for him, but my thoughts are that he made a huge contribution for us on the pitch and also off the pitch, which obviously no one else will see.

"Obviously any injury to any player can make it more difficult to reach your full potential, there is no denying that, but I have seen Jack steadily improve week by week since he has been with us."

Howe was asked whether he would like to see Wilshere back at the club next season and said: "We love him to bits, but the future is unknown and obviously he is an Arsenal player now.

"All I would say, in football, is let's wait and see."
