Jack Wilshere has suffered a fresh setback on his road to recovery from injury after Arsenal confirmed the midfielder will undergo knee surgery over the summer.

The Gunners claim the procedure is not expected to “significantly” affect the 20-year-old’s recovery from the ankle injury that kept him on the sidelines for the whole of the 2011-12 season.

An Arsenal statement read: “Jack Wilshere is continuing to recover very well from the injury to his right ankle which ruled him out of action for the 2011-12 season.

“However, his ongoing rehabilitation has seen a long-standing slight issue with his patella tendon in his left knee flare up.

“As a result, Jack will travel to Sweden for a minor procedure on his left knee in the next few days.This procedure is not expected to significantly affect Jack’s comeback ahead of next season.

“On returning to England, Jack will resume his rehabilitation with the Arsenal medical team over the summer.”
