Jack Wilshere joins West Ham on three-year deal after Arsenal exit

Paper Round West Ham weigh up shock Payet return

Despite his long association with Arsenal, there are pictures of a young Wilshere, who was born in Stevenage, wearing a West Ham shirt.

Italian worldwide Franco Vazquez is being tipped to leave La Liga club Sevilla for Premier League side West Ham United.

Jack Wilshere has signed a three-year contract with West Ham, the club confirming his signing on Twitter.

When Jack Wilshere left Arsenal this summer, nearly in tandem with father-figure Arsene Wenger, speculation about his next destination was rather timid in comparison to the rumours surrounding players of his ilk.

'Many people know that I've had a special bond with this club growing up.

'It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing'.

Emery's predecessor Arsene Wenger had recommended that the club offer Wilshere a new contract after a series of impressive performances last season.

He becomes the latest recruit in what looks set to be a significant summer of investment for West Ham and new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

"I had all the shirts, my brother did, I think I had John Moncur on the back of that, you know".

Chelsea FC have joined West Ham United in the race to sign Felipe Anderson from Lazio this summer, according to reports in the Italian media.

"On the biggest stage, he has shown that he has game-changing abilities, as well as having the creativity and intelligence to make a real difference to our squad".
