Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere turned down a £90,000-a-week contract at Birmingham City on transfer deadline day, according to a report.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere reportedly turned down a £90,000-a-week contract at Birmingham City on August 31.

The England midfielder, whose current Arsenal contract expires next summer, spent last season on loan at Bournemouth after being deemed surplus to requirements by head coach Arsene Wenger.

The 25-year-old missed the end of last season with a broken leg, but has since returned to fitness for Arsenal's Under-23 team.

Birmingham, in addition to a number of other clubs, were strongly linked with a deadline-day move for the midfielder, who had been widely tipped to leave the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window slammed shut.

However, according to The Mirror, Wilshere rejected a £90,000-a-week deal at Birmingham as he was not prepared to drop into the Championship at this stage of his career.

Wilshere has been included in Arsenal's 25-man Premier League squad for the 2017-18 campaign.
