Jack Wilshere, speaking on talkSPORT, has admitted he would be open to a move to Derby


And he says Rooney asked him to join him at Pride Park in the summer.

Wilshere said: ‘I did speak to Wazza actually, in the summer. It was when Derby were under that embargo where they couldn’t buy anyone.

‘And I went to Como as well, instead. And I thought about it, but it weren’t for me.’

talkSPORT’s Andy Goldstein then pressed Wilshere on his future plans, asking if he would be open to a move to Derby now.

Wilshere recently trained at Arsenal and is hoping to find a club to continue his playing career

Wilshere replied: ‘I don’t know, it depends what comes up in January.’ 

He also spoke about his playing time with Bournemouth in English football’s second tier last season. 

‘I played in the Championship last year and I did actually enjoy it. It’s a tough league. I don’t think it suited my style of play,’ he said.

Wilshere made his name at Arsenal, where he became their youngest debutant at the age of 16 and went on to make 198 appearances for the club.

He left the club in 2018 after injuries severely impacted his career.
