Jenkinson to decide future in next few days

SAccording to ESPN, West Ham are set to win the race to sign Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson on loan very soon.

Arsenal are set to hand the 23-year-old a new contract before allowing him out on another season loan next season.

Jenkinson played 36 times in a season-long loan at West Ham last season and a number of clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in the right-back.

Sunderland had been hoping to land him after agreeing a loan fee with the Gunners, but it is believed he would rather stay at West Ham in the Capital. Jenkinson will return home from the Czech Republic today after England Under-21s’ European Championship campaign came to a dismal end as they lost 3-1 to Italy on Wednesday.

Jenkinson is expected to resolve his future in the next few days.

  1. Probably unpopular but I still say if there’s no sell on clause tell them to stick it,we’re not a feeder club for that lot.

  2. Surely he can see he has no part in Arsenal’s future and that all they are interested in is guaranteeing themselves a big transfer fee by having him sign another contract. I’d tell Wenger to stick his new contract and stop using him as a bargaining chip.

  3. Do agree with all thats been said
    BUT rather have him now and take time to find a decent replacement ! we need a right back badly.

  4. Take him now and look for a permanent right back in the Creswell class and then use him as cover for the rest of the season,
