According to a report from the Daily Mail, Jack Wilshere is set to make a shock return for West Ham when Premier League football resumes once again, having not played for the Hammers since October 2019.

The 28-year-old joined the east London outfit on a free transfer in the summer of 2018. But he has experienced horrendous injury problems during his short spell with West Ham.

Wilshere has made just 16 appearances for the Hammers in 20 months, racking up just one goal and one assist in the process (Transfermarkt).

And he has made just eight appearances for the east London outfit this season (Transfermarkt).

The former Arsenal man is out of contract in the summer of 2021.

 

And Claret and Hugh claimed last month that West Ham want to sell the 34-capped England international this summer.

Ex-Arsenal man could still have a big part to play this season

Wilshere was originally expected to miss the rest of the season. But the Daily Mail are now claiming that the midfielder is set to make a shock return for the Hammers, whenever action resumes, having fully recovered from a pelvic injury.

West Ham are in real relegation trouble at the moment. If and when Premier League action does resume, David Moyes has a real task on his hands if he is to guide his side away from trouble.

And the Scot will be hoping that Wilshere manages to remain fit for the Hammers’ final nine games.

Who knows? The 28-year-old could still end up being an important player for West Ham.
