Arsenal star Wilshere backs Wickham move
ENGLAND and Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has backed Connor Wickham’s move from Ipswich Town to Sunderland.
The 18-year-old striker yesterday completed a �8.1 million move to the Stadium of Light – with the fee set to rise to �12 million dependent on various clauses.
And Wilshere, who Wickham will one day hope to line up alongside for England, believes the move will benefit the former Ipswich young hero.
The Arsenal midfielder, himself only 19, said on Twitter: “Good move for Connor Wickham by the way! He needs prem football now! Great prospect for England”.
