Wilshere suffers more injury heartache as CT scan reveals leg break

Date Posted,April 18, 2017

Jack Wilshere has suffered another devastating injury blow after scans revealed he has broken his leg.

The England midfielder got the bad news on Tuesday after a second CT scan on the injury he suffered to his left ankle in a tackle with Harry Kane during Bournemouth’s 4-0 defeat at Tottenham on Saturday.

It showed up a crack in his left fibula, similar to the problem which kept the Arsenal star out for most of last season.

Wilshere, 25, underwent an initial X-ray which did not show a break, but further checks revealed the full extent of the injury.

The timescale of his recovery is not yet known and there must be fears he will miss the start of next season.

He has suffered a string of injury blows through his career which have hampered his progress and led to him being loaned to Bournemouth this season.

This latest setback comes at a bad time for Wilshere who was about to begin talks over a new contract with Arsenal within the next week.
