Jack Wilshere has suffered a stress fracture in his right foot during the Arsenal midfielder’s recovery from the ankle injury that has kept him out of action this season.

The 20-year-old has not featured for the Gunners this term after suffering an ankle injury during pre-season and having to undergo surgery.

Following reports that Wilshere could now be out for the season, Arsenal have confirmed that he suffered the new injury in training but say he will be assessed by medical experts in around two weeks.

An Arsenal statement read: “The club can confirm Jack Wilshere has a small stress fracture to his right foot, however it is not accurate to state he has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

“The injury is in a different area to his previous surgery, and it will be reassessed in around two weeks time by our medical team and medical experts who have worked together throughout Jack’s recovery.

“This is a recognised complication of a complex rehabilitation process and, of critical importance, Jack’s initial injury is recovering well.”

Wilshere also confirmed the news on Twitter, saying: “I can confirm I have a stress fracture but it is not in the same area as my first injury which has healed very which I am happy about.

“I have developed a stress fracture and I don’t want to put any time scale on it as I do not know how long it will take. I will update you more in a couple of weeks when I know more.”
