Jack Wilshere says he is in no rush to settle his Arsenal future, insisting his only concern at present is keeping Bournemouth in the Premier League.
The England midfielder is currently enjoying a season-long loan spell with the Cherries in view of increasing his playing time, having had his career slowed by a string of high-profile injuries in north London.
Wilshere's deal at the Emirates Stadium is set to expire in the summer of 2018, though he claims he is not yet ready to begin negotiations in regards to a new contract.
“I’m not thinking about my future," the 25-year-old is quoted by the Daily Mirror.
I’ve got a year left at Arsenal and as soon as the season ends I’ll sit down and I’ll think about it.
“But my main concern at the moment is trying to keep Bournemouth in this league because no matter what happens next year, if I’m here if I’m not, if I’m at Arsenal – whatever – you know no one wants a relegation next to their name.
“You don’t want to be involved in a team that got relegated so that’s what we’re doing now, trying to put Bournemouth in a good position and at the end of the season I’ll have a think about it.”
Wilshere has made 22 league appearances for Bournemouth so far this season, claiming two assists.
