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.
