Jack Wilshere has posted a series of cryptic photos on social media to suggest a move to a new club is in the pipeline following his release from West Ham.

The former Arsenal wonder kid had his Hammers contract terminated on deadline day after making just 16 Premier League appearances for his boyhood club over the course of two years.

He has since been heavily linked with a move to Rangers to link up with his former England midfield teammate Steven Gerrard.

Wilshere has seen his career stunted by a string of injury struggles, but following his release he revealed that he was fully fit, but West Ham boss David Moyes had just opted not to select him.

As reported by the Daily Record, the midfielder took to Instagram to post a series of pictures of him working out, accompanied with the egg timer emoji - suggesting his new club could be revealed shortly.

The egg timer emoji is often associated with a big announcement pending - Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang dropping the same emoji shortly before he confirmed the signing of his new Arsenal contract.

Rangers appear the front runners the land Wilshere, with Nico Shira claiming that the Scottish club and former Arsenal man are currently in 'advanced talks'.

Wilshere made it clear that he is confident he can still perform at the top level, taking to Twitter following the confirmation of his release to write: "I have been fully fit for a large period of time at the club, including over the course of the last eight months - training hard every day - but unfortunately have not been given the opportunity to play.

"Although of course I am frustrated that I was not fully able to showcase what I am capable of at West Ham I remain convinced I can still contribute at the very top of the game."
