Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has announced that he is making steady progress in his bid to recover from ankle a persistent ankle injury.

The England international sustained the problem during the Gunners' pre-season encounter with New York Red Bulls and was initially only expected to be out for a few weeks.

However, the 19-year-old has since been ruled out for up to three months, and has been required to wear a protective boot in order to prevent any further damage.

Wilshere, though, has been working in the gym in a bid to regain his fitness and has suggested his rehabilitation has been going well thus far.


"Good day at football today! In the gym again! Ankle feeling a lot better hope to be back playing soon!" Wilshere tweeted.

Arsenal have endured a nightmarish start to the season without Wilshere; losing three out of their first five fixtures in the Barclays Premier League.

Blackburn were the most recent beneficiaries of Arsenal's poor form, overturning a 2-1 deficit to win 4-3 at Ewood Park on Saturday.
