Wilshere given England go ahead

Roy Hodgson has been given the thumbs up to play Jack Wilshere in England’s friendly international against Scotland at Wembley tomorrow evening, the Mirror understands.

The 21 year old is set to make only his second start for his country in 26 months, and his eighth appearance overall, with the blessing of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

However the midfielder, who made thirty-three club appearances last season, is likely to play no more in the game that will see the Three Lions face the Tartan Army for the first time in fourteen years, while fellow midfielders Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also in line to feature.

Meanwhile, Marouane Chamakh has completed his move to London rivals Crystal Palace, according the Mail Online.

The Morocco International had fallen out of favour at the Emirates, and was loaned to West Ham United in January, where he has only made two league starts.

He moved to the Gunners three seasons ago, but managed just fourteen goals in sixty-seven appearances since signing from Bordeaux.

The 29 year old has signed a one-year deal with the Eagles, and has become the latest international to leave the Emirates this season following the departures of Andre Santos, Gervinho, Andriy Arshavin and Sebastien Squillaci.
