Former England and Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere has discussed his footballing future, stating that he is keen to stay at Danish Superliga club AGF Aarhus.

The midfielder remained without a club for the first seven months of the 2021/22 season, having been released by Bournemouth, before signing a short-term deal with Aarhus in Denmark. The club endured a difficult end to their season, and narrowly avoided relegation by a single point on the final day thanks to a 2-2 draw with Nordsjaelland.

Speaking at a STATSports event, Wilshere talked about the club's poor form, but also stated that he would be interested in staying at AGF:

“Because of what happened towards the end of the season, where we survived on the last day, there wasn’t really much time to have those kinds of conversations because there was a lot of stress around the thought of relegation.

“I think at the end of the season everyone needed to take a breath and have a few days before those conversations start. The manager got sacked so there’s going to be a new coach going in there. I would [like to go back] if the coach wants me and I get to speak to him.

"As I said before, I really like the place and I like the city, I like the club. We’ll see.”
