The Times report that West Ham are working to lay-off Jack Wilshere who is currently earning a whooping sum of £100,000 per-week wages.

Wilshere’s fitness problem has continued to mere his football career with the Hammers, as he’s started just six games in two seasons.

West Ham’s former manager Manuel Pellegrini’s decision to hand Wilshere a three-year deal has led to a regret and the club are preparing to cut their losses soon.

The former Arsenal and Hale End academy graduate joined (West Ham) his boyhood club in 2018, after failing to get a contract extension at Arsenal.

The England international announced his intention to leave Arsenal at the end of his contract in 2018 summer, so as to get a fresh start elsewhere.

Since joining the Hammers, Wilshere has been restricted to just 16 appearance for the club. His injury woes doesn’t seems to be over for the once heralded as future England international captain.

Wilshere will be out of contract next summer and the club are now hoping to find a buyer for the England international player. The club are also prepared to subsidise a move or preferably buy out the remaining one-year of his contract.

The 28-year-old midfielder’s career looks to be coming to an end sooner than expected, as the former Arsenal player will be without a club if his contract is eventually terminated by the Hammers.

It’s left to be seen if Jack Wilshere will consider retiring from football and venture into a coaching career or give his active football career the last chance elsewhere next season.
