Wilshere returns to full training

The 24-year-old has not featured at all this campaign

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere has returned to full training as he steps up his return from a broken leg.

Wilshere, who has not featured for the Gunners since suffering a broken fibula in pre-season, will not be considered for Arsenal’s clash with Watford this weekend but Wenger has revealed that he may line out for the under-21s next week.

"Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky are back in full training. Basically they are progressing well," Wenger told the club's official website.

"We have not decided that (if Wilshere will feature for U21s) yet. It is his first week back in full training and we'll see how he responds to that, but the first signs are quite good. We'll assess our options next week."

The Arsenal boss also revealed that Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini join long term absentees Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in missing this weekend’s game, but he says Petr Cech might be available to return against the Hornets.

"Cech is going back to normal training. It's too early to say if he will be available for the weekend. He might be a bit short to be competitive," added Wenger.
