Bringing in Carl Jenkinson as cover is a great idea for Leeds

Leeds are starting to re-find the form that made them so hard to beat at the start of the season as they continue to look towards promotion. 

The Lilywhites launched themselves almost to favourites to reach the top flight after the electric start to life Marcelo Bielsa had at the club when arriving over the summer.

With a great start, the Championship has again proven to be a tricky obstacle that has countlessly proven to be a challenge to escape from.

Leeds have recently seen their right-back Luke Ayling ruled out for two months due to injury and with little in the form of cover, why not hatch a plan to sign Arsenal outcast Carl Jenkinson as a strong back-up option.

26-year-old Jenkinson, who is valued at £3.1 million on Transfermarkt, is a player that really needs regular game-time to get back to the talented full-back he once was.

Especially when looking back to his form when on-loan with West Ham and certain moments during his Arsenal career, it’s easy to see that if they get that version of Carl Jenkinson, Leeds can be assured with their business.

Unsurprisingly Jenkinson hasn’t yet featured for Arsenal this season and a move away from the Emirates at this stage of his career could really save him from an early retirement.

Having been plagued with a string of unfortunate injuries, fit-again Carl Jenkinson could make a valuable contribution to Leeds with Luke Ayling currently out injured.

Although a deal would have to wait until January at least, the ability to turn to the Englishman if the team needs rotating is a great plan B to have.
