England midfielder Jack Wilshere, who made his debut for Bournemouth at the weekend, says he is flexible enough to cover numerous positions for his loan club.

Wilshere initially played behind striker Callum Wilson against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday but later switched to the wing as Bournemouth chalked up their first Premier League victory of the season.

“I came on in the number 10 position and then moved to the right. I can do that role and I can also play deeper. I am comfortable in all of those positions,” he told the club website (www.afcb.co.uk).

“Different games bring different problems so we will see. The biggest aim for me, and I am sure everyone is aware of it, is to get as many games as possible. That was the idea coming here.”

Wilshere has joined Bournemouth following an injury-disrupted season during which he made just three appearances for his parent club Arsenal.

“If there’s any question mark over me I know it’s my fitness so hopefully I can play as many games as possible, prove everyone wrong and re-kick my career,” he said.

Bournemouth, who have four points from four league games, face a stern test at leaders Manchester City on Saturday.
