Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered another stress fracture to his ankle but has not been ruled out for the season, Press Association Sport understands.

The 20-year-old was first troubled by an ankle problem while on international duty with England last summer and, apart from a pre-season appearance in the Emirates Cup, has not played a competitive match for the Gunners this season.

Wilshere, who needed surgery after initially wearing a protective boot, was set to return in early February, but felt pain when running in training last week. It is understood he has suffered a small stress fracture in his right ankle and that he is being monitored ahead of a scan on the injury in two weeks' time.
