Cape Town - On-loan Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wilshere suffered a major setback to his waning career after he was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

The England international midfielder joined the Cherries on loan from Arsenal at the start of the season in a bid to restore a career that had been heavily set back by injury troubles. Wilshere played only 141 minutes for the Gunners last season.

Under Eddie Howe, the technically gifted playmaker has been injury free, in a solid but unspectacular temporary spell at the Vitality Stadium, yielding two assists in 29 Premier League games.

Now after suffering a hairline fracture in his left fibula during the 4-0 drubbing against Tottenham on Saturday, major questions surround his long-term future with his parent club.

The 25-year-old looked set to start negotiations over a new contract with Arsene Wenger's side, but according to reports from Sky Sports, talks will now be put on hold.

Since making his Premier League debut in 2008, Wilshere has featured 146 times scoring seven goals and registering 17.
