West Ham are still negotiating hard to bring Carl Jenkinson to West Ham for a second loan season.
A report on www.kumb.com that the player had snubbed the chance of a move to Sunderland in favour of an Upton Park return.
As we reported yesterday (Tues) the Black Cats management have offered £500,000 above the £2 million loan fee asking price for the England under-21.
But the Hammers believe they are still in with a shout and a re still talking to Jenks’ advisers although it is well known the player would prefer to stay in London.
We were told: “These are difficult talks and only time will tell, as far as we can see it remains a 50/50 situation. Obviously we like Jenks a lot.”
