‘LaLiga would be a nice change and I’m NOT too young for MLS’: Jack Wilshere ready for a new adventure abroad after West Ham tore up his £100,000-a-week deal earlier this month
- Jack Wilshere has been undergoing personal training programme to stay fit
- He is in touch with his agent every two days and considering various offers
- England international ‘had to get out’ of West Ham and mutually terminated deal
- At 28, Wilshere’s next move is crucial and he thinks LaLiga may suit his style
The 28-year-old mutually agreed to terminate his £100,000-a-week deal with David Moyes’ side as he was not part of the Scot’s plans.

Having burst onto the scene as an exciting young talent, Wilshere’s next move at 28 is crucial
Given his style of play and injury record, Wilshere is attracted to a move abroad in one of Europe’s top leagues but admits the lure of the MLS is also an interesting one.
‘La Liga, Italy or Germany would be a nice change for me’, he added. ‘Not many English players have done it.
‘I always watch La Liga, it was always something I thought about. I like the league, I think it’s more technical than the English game. I think it’s somewhere I could really show what I can do.
‘I don’t think I’m too young for the MLS. It’s on Sky Sports, I think there’s been a big improvement in that league. If the right opportunity came up…
