Jack Wilshere has opened up the links with Derby County during the summer transfer window.

Wayne Rooney’s hands were tied during the summer, with Derby working under a transfer embargo and only restricted to signing free agents. They brought in the likes of Sam Baldock, Phil Jagielka and Ravel Morrison.

The Rams were also linked with Wilshere, who remains a free agent having been released by Bournemouth at the end of his contract last season.

The former England and Arsenal midfielder was said to be training with Derby at one point, which turned out to be false, before he started training with Italian side Como.

Quiz: Did these 25 Derby County transfers actually happen?

Wilshere is still on the lookout for a new club, though, after a move to Italy failed to materialise, and he spoke live on talkSPORT this morning discussing his situation.

“I did speak to Wazza in the summer, it was when Derby were under that embargo where they couldn’t buy anyone.

“I went to Como instead. I thought about it, but it weren’t for me. I don’t know, it depends what comes up in January.

“I played in the Championship last year, I did actually enjoy it. It’s a tough league, I don’t think it suited my style of play.”
