Stuttering Arsenal man could be sent to Steve Bruce for straightening out

It would be an understatement to say that Carl Jenkinson’s career has stuttered since he joined Arsenal in 2011.

The 24-year-old defender – probably a right-back – has featured just five times for the Gunners this season.

Jenkinson has already been loaned out twice during his time at Arsenal – to West Ham United on both occasions.

A third loan move could now be on the cards, with the Birmingham Mail reporting that Aston Villa want him in January.

Villa are currently mid-table in the Championship, but with promotion still in their sights.

They are managed by Steve Bruce, who is looking for a fresh option in Villa’s no.2 position, according to the BM.

Bruce was a successful no-nonsense defender as a player, winning three Premier League titles with Manchester United.

Surely if any manager can straighten out the stuttering Jenkinson it is old Brucey!
