West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere has fully recovered from a troublesome groin injury which has kept him out for most of the season, according to reports.
The 28-year-old has only played eight games this campaign, having last made an appearance all the way back in October. Supporters on Twitter are sceptical about the latest update:

Fit is a very relative word when it comes to Wilshere

Plenty of time to get injured again before this season resumes!

Wilshere’s free transfer move from Arsenal two years ago has proven to be an expensive failure so far, with the midfielder having failed to shake off his injury problems.
He spent most of last season on the treatment table with an ankle issue, and the two major injuries mean he has been restricted to just 16 appearances in total for the Hammers.
There has even been some talk that the club may look to terminate Wilshere’s contract early, but it seems he will now see out the final year of his current deal. Whether he will be able to stay fit next season, we shall have to wait and see.
