This guy predicted Jack Wilshere’s move to Bournemouth a YEAR ago

Jack Wilshere today completed a loan move from Arsenal to Bournemouth.

But one Arsenal fan predicted the move would happen – lats June.

Tom Gordon, posting under the Twitter name @GoonerGordo (giving some clue to his club allegiances), wrote on June 27th 2015 “Wilshere is joining Bournemouth”.

Now, call that incredible foresight, call it spooky, or simply call it what it is, which is a lucky guess, it’s still a bit weird.

And it still impressed some of his followers when it came to pass today:

And then the inevitable:

Bournemouth chief executive Neil Blake said: “Jack is a fantastic addition to the club.

“He is a player that needs no introduction and one that, quite rightly, our supporters will be excited to see in a Bournemouth shirt.

“He will bring a wealth of international and Premier League experience, so we are delighted to be able to welcome a player of his calibre to the club.”

Wilshere has spent his entire professional career at Arsenal, save for a short loan spell in 2010 under then-Bolton boss Owen Coyle.

He has played 157 games for the club but has struggled with injuries, restricting his first team action, hence the need for a loan switch.
