Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere reveals that he suits playing in an advanced role better at club level than he would for England.

Jack Wilshere has admitted that he enjoys playing further forward in midfield in his role for Arsenal.

The 22-year-old was deployed as a holding midfielder in front of the back four for England in their Euro 2016 qualifying games against San Marino and Estonia.

However, Wilshere has revealed that he suits the advanced role better for his club than he would at international level.

"With Arsenal we don't play the diamond," he told reporters. "It probably wouldn't suit me as much.

"We play with one holding and two ahead with two wide men so it probably wouldn't suit me as much, I probably can play that role but I enjoy playing a bit higher for Arsenal. For Arsenal, yeah, for England, no."

Arsenal are back in action in the Premier League this weekend against Hull City.
