ARSENE Wenger is expecting Cherries' stricken loan star Jack Wilshere to stay at Vitality Stadium for the remainder of the campaign.

Wilshere will not play again this term after suffering a hairline fracture of his left fibula in a challenge with Tottenham's Harry Kane last Saturday.

The 25-year-old had been expected to immediately return to parent club Arsenal but Gunners' boss Wenger sees no reason for the midfielder to rush back to north London before the conclusion of his season-long deal.

"Until the end of the season he's a Bournemouth player, but we have a good understanding with their medical staff," said Wenger, who revealed he had not spoken to Wilshere since he sustained the injury.

"I had a meeting with our medical staff to see how we can liaise and whether we have to bring him back.

"It's a fracture so there's not a lot you can do, it's just about when he can move again. The rehab will certainly be done here because the season will be over.

"The loan spell finishes at the end of the season, so during the summer break all the rehab will happen here."
