West Ham complete Jenkinson loan deal

West Ham United have completed the signing of Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson on a season-long loan, the Guardian has reported.

Sam Allardyce’s side have beaten off competition from Hull City, Sunderland and Swansea City to land the 22-year-old, who was unlikely to be given many opportunities to play in the Arsenal first team next season due to the recent signings of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers, who can both play in his position.


Jenkinson, an Arsenal supporter, was brought to the club from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2011 and has gone on to make 57 appearances and score one goal, mainly acting as back-up to the recently departed Bacary Sagna.


He becomes West Ham’s sixth signing of the summer as they look to improve on last season’s final resting place of 13th, joining Mauro Zarate, Cheikhou Kouyate, Aaron Cresswell, Diego Poyet and Enner Valencia, and upon completing the move Jenkinson said: “I’m clearly seen as a big part of things here and hopefully I can prove my worth here because it is an important year for me.


“I was flattered to have a lot of options but deep down, if I was being honest with myself, West Ham was always the place I wanted to go to. It’s one of them where I wanted to do the right professional thing and consider all the options, but in the back of my mind it was always West Ham and I’m just so glad it’s all worked out how I wanted it to in the end.’
