Jack Wilshere has sustained a hairline fracture to the navicular bone in his left foot.

The midfielder suffered the injury during England’s match with Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night, in which he played 59 minutes of the 1-0 win.

Following initial scans carried out by The FA on Wednesday night, further investigation by Arsenal’s medical team has discovered a crack to a small bone in Wilshere’s left foot - the navicular, an area of his foot which has not been previously injured.

Wilshere will now require a period of approximately six weeks’ rehabilitation, before embarking on regaining his match fitness.
