More promising Jenkinson signs

jenkinson1There are more promising signs this morning that Carl Jenkinson will become a permanent West Ham signing in the summer.

Reporter – and lifelong Arsenal fan John Cross – writes in today’s Mirror that Hector Bellerin has been lined up to sign a new four year Gooners contract.

And that will mean that Carl Jenkinson will be allowed to move on a with the player having enjoyed a great Upton Park year and wishing to remain in London, the right back begins to look nailed on.

Bellerin, 19, has impressed since moving into the right back position in Mathieu Debuchy’s absence and a new deal has apparently been agreed which will take him up to 2019.

Little gets by ‘Crossie’ inside the Emirates where he has good contacts and the story confirms a ClaretandHugh report that the Gunners will be looking for around b£6 million for Jenkinson.

Inisders at Upton Park have revealed that negotiations with Arsenal will start at the end of the season and that Jenks is a priority signing.

And in fairness to Sam Allardyce the defensive side of the player’s game has improved since his arrival at the Boleyn.

He is a naturally attacking wing back but in recent games especially has shown some fine defensive capabilities.
