Jack Wilshere is back training with Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta has confirmed the midfielder is back at London Colney while he searches for a new club and works towards his coaching badges.

Wilshere, 29, has been without a club since leaving Bournemouth in the summer.

He left Arsenal in 2019 after 17 years to join West Ham and Arteta says Wilshere has now returned as the Gunners help him with the "next stage" of his career.

Arteta told Arsenal.com: "What you should believe is that we want to help Jack prepare for his next stage, physically, mentally.

"He wants to do his coaching badges again and we are prepared to fulfil all the needs that he wants. That is basically the idea and it is no further than that.

"I am very happy to have him back. We had a conversation with Jack and understand the needs that he has, the period that he is going through and I think everyone at the club agreed it was the right moment to help him.

"We sat down with him and we listened to what he wanted to do and what stage he is and we are prepared to do anything we can to help him.

"He is going to be training sometimes with us, he is going to be around the place, he is going to be continuing his coaching badges that he is very interested in, try to get him fit, try to get his experiences across to our players, our young players, our academy and I think it is great influence to have around."
