“Wilshere turned us down on our last-minute attempt”

Asked by Turkish Football about Trabzonspor attempt to sign English international midfielder Jack WIlshere (25) from Arsenal, Süper Lig side chairman, Muharrem Usta, stated: “I held direct talks with Jack Wilshere. We wanted him on loan, and were close to a deal, but the move stalled at the last moment, since he chose to stay put”.

While his contract with Gunners will expire after next June, former Bournemouth player is now determined to get a fresh start at Emirates Stadium, despite some past disciplinary troubles, which put him against Arsène Wenger and the club themselves.
