Jack Wilshere caused the biggest shock on Transfer Deadline Day when he left his boyhood club Arsenal, for a loan move to the south coast with Bournemouth.

No one had anticipated the 24-year-old, who came through the Gunners' youth ranks as a very highly-rated midfielder, to leave the club whatsoever. Arsene Wenger's decision to let him go out on loan baffled many Arsenal fans, of which many came to accept the decision.

Wilshere's career has been blighted by numerous and long-term injuries that have stopped the England international's career progressing to the levels the north London club had anticipated. However, a season at Bournemouth was seen as the chance for Wilshere to prove his qualities.
