West Ham United have signed Jack Wilshere from Arsenal Football Club.
The 26-year-old announced a couple of weeks ago that he would not be renewing his contract with the Gunners and out move to a new club during the summer.
And now the midfielder has moved across London to join the Hammers – a transfer that was in the pipeline for some time now.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery wanted Wilshere to stay at the Emirates but had made it clear that the 26-year-old will not be a guaranteed starter next season.
This was the main reason which prompted Jack Wilshere to move out of the Emirates.

Jack Wilshere has joined the London Stadium on a three-year deal.
The 26-year-old has joined his boyhood club after which he told the club’s official website: “It feels good, it feels special,
“Many people know that I’ve had a special bond with this Club growing up.
“People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt and I’ve got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park.
“It feels good and of course, my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone’s buzzing.”
