Arsenal news LIVE: Arteta wins manager of the month, QPR friendly victory, Watkins and Calvert-Lewin EXCLUSIVE – updates


Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes free agent Jack Wilshere could end up landing a new club if he continues to train with the Gunners.

He told talkSPORT: “I did go back to Arsenal training, I was getting sharp, I was competing in midfield.  

“I ended up getting a better offer – I went to Hull City instead! I always wanted to play in a relegation battle. 

“That’s why I went to Hull and, luckily enough, we came fourth-bottom [in the Championship]. 

“The following season, they get promoted, Dean Windass at Wembley, that great volley, and then Hull were in the Premier League.  

“So, they could have been in League One but they ended up in the Premier League and I really enjoyed my time at Hull. 

“It’s great when you go back to train with your old club and I was very lucky that [Arsene] Wenger said I could. 

“I’d train during the week with Arsenal, then I’d drive up there on a Friday, I’d train Friday with the lads, play Saturday, and then come back to London again. 

“So, that was a great deal for everyone because I always said that I wouldn’t take their money – you only pay me when I play. 

“Maybe Jack Wilshere will be on the same sort of deal.”
