Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has undergone another ankle operation, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Speaking at his press conference this morning, Wenger said the England international had gone under the knife for a “minor procedure” to ease discomfort he was experiencing in the ankle.

Wilshere, aged 22, has recently returned to fitness having been out of action since suffering ankle ligament damage during a tackle by Manchester United defender Paddy McNair during a game in November.

He was named as a substitute for last weekend’s 1-2 Premier League win at Crystal Palace. Although he didn’t play in that game, he was unable to train on Monday and was not involved for the Champions League defeat to Monaco on Wednesday evening.

Wenger’s update this morning confirms why that was the case.

Wilshere has been blighted by ankle problems throughout his short career to date and Arsenal will be hoping that there are no complications arising from his minor operation.
