Jack Wilshere insists that he is not interested in discussing a new contract with Arsenal at the moment.
Wilshere made his debut for Bournemouth as a second-half substitute on Saturday, having joined the club from Arsenal on a season-long loan.
It is believed that the midfielder still has a future with the Gunners, and manager Arsene Wenger expects him to sign a new contract before the end of the year.
Wilshere’s current deal expires in 2018, but he insists he is fully concentrated on Bournemouth and on playing regular first-team football.
“I don’t want to talk about that at the moment,” the 24-year-old said of Wenger’s comments. “I’m a Bournemouth player now in my head. I want to help Bournemouth get as high up the league as possible and also for myself I want to play 25 or 30 games.
“I don’t care what people say. The decision was down to me and it was best for my career. I could have sat at Arsenal and just come on now and then. The manager couldn’t promise me I would play now.
“That wasn’t good enough for me. I want to play week in and week out. Bournemouth have given me the opportunity to do that.
“I’ve missed almost 18 months of football and I haven’t played in the Premier League week in and week out for a good time. I miss the Premier League.
“I spoke with the manager and as soon as I met with him I knew I wanted to work with him, to be my coach. It wasn’t what he said, it was the way he conducted himself.
