Soccer-Wilshere to miss rest of Bournemouth season with broken leg

April 19 (Reuters) - Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wilshere, who is on loan from Arsenal, will miss the rest of the season after breaking his leg during a 4-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Wilshere, who is into the final 18 months of his contract at the Emirates, will undergo further specialist assessments after the scan showed a hairline crack of his left fibula. He is expected to be fit for the start of next season.

“It is a big blow to lose Jack,” Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said on the club website. (

“We have loved working with him since he arrived at the club last August. He has made a huge contribution to our season, both on and off the pitch.”

”We wish him a quick recovery and thank him for his effort and professionalism while he was with us.”

The 25-year-old England international has made 27 league appearances for Bournemouth during his season-long loan deal from the North London club -- his biggest run of domestic outings since the 2013-14 season.
