West Ham’s powers-that-be will be disappointed if they don’t conclude deals for Carl Jenkinson and Alex Song.
The Arsenal right back is understood to have been offered a major new pay deal at the Emirates ahead of joining the Irons on a new loan deal.
As reported by ClaretandHugh several days ago, despite a tentative approach to buy the player on a permanent deal we were told by our own sources there was no chance of it happening.
We had been told: “Arsenal won’t hear of it,” and today there are reports that Jenks will now be handed a bumper new deal before arriving at Upton Park on loan.
The player is expected back from a Cyprus holiday this week and the Hammers hope to tie up the deal quickly along with Alex Song.
Some reports say the defensive midfielder is considering his future but a Hammers source told us: “We would be disappointed if we didn’t do those two deals.”
