Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has revealed that he has no problem being shifted out of position if it benefits the team.

Manager Arsene Wenger opted to deploy Wilshere, usually a centre-midfielder, in a wide role in Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Sunderland at the Emirates.

It was the 23-year-old's first start in six months following an ankle injury, but the England international does not mind testing his versatility.

"It's different. I have been playing in a defensive role for England, and in a more attacking central role for Arsenal," he told the club's official website.

"It is always good when you can play a number of positions, it gives the manager options and if someone is playing well in one position he knows you can fill in somewhere else. So I am happy."

Wilshere was included in the England squad for clashes with the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia next month.
