Irons Jenks hopes dashed

carl-jenkinson-562633West Ham’s hopes of signing Carl Jenkinson permanently have been dashed.

The Hammers would love to sign the Arsenal right back to a long term deal but Arsenal flatly refuse to entertain the idea.

Speculation that we would try to do a permanent deal started back in the January and has resurfaced over recent days.

And although the club’s negotiators attempted to get talks underway, the Emirates board made it clear that wasn’t on.

However,  there is now a big chance of the Gunners England under 21 rejoining us on loan for the new season but unless there is a dramatic change of heart a permanent switch won’t happen.

A high level Upton Park source said after we posed the question: “No, Arsenal 100 per cent won’t do a permanent deal.”

  1. Look at others and let him wait,£4 million is not good business for one year,
    I would sooner sign Johnson for nothing and bring in another young lad similar to

  2. I agree, Johnson and Sam Byram or to be honest Bryam on his own would be sufficient for me. Young player with three season for first team football. Better long-term investment for us

  3. Isn’t this something we knew a month ago? Nice headline to get hits mind.

  4. F*ck Johnson,i would rather stick an old pub player on the pitch,lol,why so cynical Spy,does the hits on this site effect your life in some way,lol

  5. I still think they will sell next summer, but not for peanuts. Getting him on a long contract allows them to ask decent money for him. I don’t think Wenger was impressed last season, by everybody talking like we had him in the bag quiet cheaply.

  6. Don’t mind taking him on loan as long as there is a clause to buy next year,
    Just think it’s a lot of money for one year
    Johnson did nothing to hurt our club we sold him because we needed the money not because he requested it,

  7. I dont mind whether he did nothing to hurt our club or not he is pants now,lol,if we signed him i would be well p*ssed off 😀

  8. Sorry Rads if we sign Jenkinson John will be ****ed off if we sign Johnson quite a few will be ****ed off if we sign Corluka another lot will be ****ed off,
    We need someone new on the list

  9. Should have gone for Trippier for £3.5m… cheap, English, young & a good player. Now a Spud 🙁

  10. Agreed, Byram of Leeds should be a target now even if he is going to break the bank
    We knew we needed a right back what have our scouts been doing

  11. Yes look elsewhere before it’s too late and let the Gunners stew in their own mess.I think Jenkinson has been too quiet and should have told Wenger what he wanted and not become a hostage in all this.

  12. I am so relieved that Arsenal are not interested in a permanent deal, what a waste of money that would be and he would not be cheap. I also believe that it is time to forget him, look at our options and buy a top class (Jens not top class) right back. Great news they are keeping him – I hope the owners see the ROI is just not there to take him on loan…

  13. Im bored with this Jenks thing.Trouble with the media these days.You read stuff everyday.Used to not know anything till they signed or didnt.Maybe i will disconnect my wifi till the transfer window shuts 😉
