AGF also announced Wilshere signing on their official website on Sunday and hoped that the 30 year old would turn out well while donning jersey number 10.

“Jack needs no further presentation and he has shown his worth on both club and national level over the past ten years. So when the opportunity arose to get him here to Aarhus, we had no doubt that we would like to pursue it. Jack can contribute with his excellent technique and his eye for the game and he will give us some extra offensive tools,” AGF wrote in their official website, agf.dk.

AGF Football Director, Stig Inge Bjornebye, said of Wilshere : “He is in good physical shape, but obviously lacks some game fitness. But that will soon come, and we look forward to seeing him in the white jersey, when he has settled in.”

Wilshere who played 34 times for Three Lions of England after making his senior international debut against Denmark is looking forward being a quality addition to the squad.

“I am very much looking forward to contributing to the team,” he said. ” I’m physically in really good shape and I feel fit, so now for me it’s about getting into the squad and see if I can earn some playing time for the club and contribute to get some wins.”
