Jack Wilshere joined Laura Woods and Adebayo Akinfenwa on the Super 6 podcast, but what did he say when he was asked if he'd join Tottenham if an offer came forth?

Jack Wilshere was the latest guest on the Super 6 Podcast, joining hosts Laura Woods and Adebayo Akinfenwa to discuss where next for his career, Barcelona and much more.

The midfielder is currently a free agent following his departure from West Ham by mutual consent on Deadline Day in October. The former England international has made 182 Premier League appearances in his career, tallying an impressive 87 wins in that period.

That said, Wilshere is now on the search for a new club, and having come through the Arsenal academy, was questioned by Woods and Akinfenwa about whether he could - if approached - join Spurs.

He told the latest Super 6 podcast: "I love Mourinho, I think he's an unbelievable coach... But I couldn't do it."

Wilshere went on to say: "They wouldn't have me!... But I don't think I could do it. It's not as if Arsenal got rid of me and kicked me out and there is bad feeling, they offered me a deal and I wanted to try something else. I'm an Arsenal man."

Alongside this, Wilshere reflects on some memorable moments in his career during the Super 6 Podcast, including his debut as a 16-year-old at Arsenal and earning his first international cap for England.

And who could forget his performance against Barcelona in 2011, in which he was the star of the show in their Champions League clash, outshining Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets in the middle of the park.
