JASON Tindall insisted Jack Wilshere is "certainly not about to sign a deal", but did not rule out making a future move for the midfielder.

Wilshere, capped 34 times by England, has been without a club since leaving West Ham United in October.

He has been training with Cherries for the past three weeks to maintain his fitness.

Tindall's midfield options have been hit this week by the news that Junior Stanislas is facing at least a month out of action with an ankle problem.

Asked if that injury could speed up any potential contract for Wilshere, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "No, not what happens to Junior. Jack came in and was training with us and training well with us whilst Junior was here and fit.

"As I’ve said before, really pleased that Jack’s in with us. When you’ve got a player of Jack’s quality training with you, it can only be a good thing.

"If anything moves forward, or if there’s anything to report then the media, you guys, will no doubt be the first people to know."

Quizzed on if a deal with the 29-year-old was imminent, Tindall added: "No, he’s certainly not about to sign a deal."
