Premier League side Bournemouth have been left celebrating after they managed to beat rivals for the signature of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The 24-year-old England international had been linked with a host of clubs this window, including Watford, Crystal Palace and Serie A side Roma, but has instead opted to spend the season with Eddie Hove on the south coast on a season-long deal.
Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said:
-Jack is a fantastic addition to the club. He is a player that needs no introduction and one that, quite rightly, our supporters will be excited to see in a Bournemouth shirt. He will bring a wealth of international and Premier League experience, so we are delighted to be able to welcome a player of his calibre to the club.
Wilshere's Arsenal career to date has famously been blighted by numerous injury layoffs, including almost all of last season due to a broken fibula.
