Arsenal have confirmed that Jack Wilshere has suffered a broken leg and will miss the rest of the season.
Wilshere, who has spent the season on loan at Bournemouth, sustained the injury, after he collided with Harry Kane, during the second half of their 4-0 Premier League defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.
Scans later showed that the 25-year-old suffered a hairline crack to his left fibula — a similar injury to that which kept him out for the majority of last season.
“We can confirm that Jack Wilshere has suffered a fractured left fibula,” Arsenal said in a statement.
“The midfielder, who is on a season-long loan at AFC Bournemouth, sustained the injury during the Cherries’ Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. X-rays taken after the game were clear, but further scans showed a hairline crack in the fibula.
“Jack will undergo further specialist assessments in the forthcoming days to identify more specifics regarding the injury and also to structure a rehabilitation programme. It is hoped that Jack will be fit for the start of next season.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery.”
Wilshere made 29 league appearances for Eddie Howe’s side.
