JASON Tindall said Jack Wilshere was “looking a lot sharper” having trained with Cherries over the past two weeks – and did not rule out a deal for the midfield star.

The Daily Echo exclusively revealed last month the 29-year-old had reunited with his previous loan club, who are helping him build up his fitness.

Wilshere is a free agent after cancelling his contract with West Ham by mutual consent in October of last year.

Asked whether he would personally like to sign the England international, boss Tindall told the Daily Echo: “If I feel that he could add to the group and be a good signing for the second half of the season, then who wouldn’t?”

Wilshere’s most recent competitive game came for West Ham in a Carabao Cup victory over Hull City in September.

“He’s training and training well, I’ve got to say,” added Tindall.

“I’ve been really pleased we have been able to have Jack here training with us.

“He’s still got a bit to do, because he’s not done a lot now for four months.

“He’s only been with us now for a couple of weeks and probably had maybe six training sessions within that time, due to the fixtures we’ve had.

“But he’s certainly getting fitter. He’s certainly looking a lot sharper and that’s one we will probably assess in the next few days, a week or so, and then we will see where we are.

Former Gunners ace Wilshere played 27 times for Cherries in the Premier League during the 2016-17 campaign, having joined on a season-long loan.

He helped Eddie Howe’s men record their highest ever league finish, ending the season ninth in the top flight.

Tindall added: “I have stayed in touch with Jack since he left the football club.

“He was great to work with, he’s a great lad and I think when he was here at the football club, he really took the club and everyone to heart.

“He really enjoyed his experience and time here. We’ve got a good relationship and when you’ve got an opportunity to bring someone in to train with the group, with the quality of Jack, then you’re not going to turn it down.”
