Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere will be out for "a few weeks" with an ankle injury, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has said.

The 23-year-old England midfielder's career has been punctuated by injury and now he has suffered another - a hairline crack of his left fibula.

Wilshere will miss Saturday's Barclays Premier League season opener with West Ham and also faces missing England's Euro 2016 qualifying Group E fixtures with San Marino and Switzerland next month.

Wenger said on arsenal.com: "I had a bad surprise because it is a hairline crack in his fibula that makes him a few weeks out."
