Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere has given update on his contract situation. And it doesn’t look like anything is happening soon on that front.

The midfielder, who started his first game since May 2016 in the draw against West Ham, has always maintained his desire to stay at the Emirates. He is out of contract at the end of the season, and is free to talk to foreign clubs from January.

Speaking on his contract situation, Wilshere confirmed nothing has changed.

“There’s no update, we’re in the same position we were in two weeks ago,” he said .

“There’s not really a date in the diary. I’ve only read what he [the manager] has said in the media. At the moment, I’ve just played my first game in the Premier League.

“I’m concentrating on staying fit and staying in its team. That will look after itself and when it’s the right time, I’m sure the boss will pull me so we can have a chat.

“There’s another game on Saturday, we’ll see what the boss does then. At the moment that’s all I’m focused on.

“I’m happy. I said before that I was happy, I was just waiting for my opportunity. It came and I think I took it well.

“It’s different playing in the Premier League compared to the Europa League. You don’t get that much time on the ball. When you receive it you always have to check your shoulder because there’s not much space in behind the midfield against teams like West Ham.”
