The defender has been in great form at Upton Park under Sam Allardyce…
West Ham co-owner David Gold has hinted that the East London club could make a permanent move for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson.
The right-back has been in fine form for the Hammers since arriving on loan in the summer, and it is possible that they could attempt to keep him come the end of the season. Alongside fellow full-back Ryan Cresswell the England international has been a key part of Sam Allardyce’s successful season at Upton Park.
The 23-year-old can’t take part when the Gunners face West Ham on Saturday, but Gold hinted that he may face the North London club in the next campaign. This could be a way of telling fans that a transfer for the player is in the offing.
“@juliansheasport: Is Carl Jenkinson available to play v Arsenal or does loan forbid it? He will not play against Arsenal. This year. dg
