Jack Wilshere has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken leg sustained against Tottenham on Saturday, according to Sky sources.

Wilshere faces another prolonged absence after scan results revealed the severity of the injury.

It showed up a crack in his left fibula, similar to the injury which kept the Arsenal midfielder out for most of last season.

Wilshere, on a season-long loan at the Vitality Stadium, went down following a collision with Harry Kane after an hour of Saturday's 4-0 defeat before being jeered by Spurs supporters at White Hart Lane.

Bournemouth defender Steve Cook condemned the reaction of the home fans as Wilshere left the pitch.

The 25-year-old midfielder was forced to leave the field with what looked like an ankle issue.

He was later seen leaving the stadium on crutches and wearing a protective boot on his left foot.

Wilshere's future remains uncertain with Shaun Custis of The Sun, speaking on the Sunday Supplement, claiming the midfielder's career is at a "crossroads".

The injury comes at a bad time as he is due to enter contract talks with his parent club, with his current deal running until the end of the season.
