Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were surprised to hear Metro‘s report that Carl Jenkinson is set to sign a new contract with the Gunners although looking certain to be heading towards the exit.
The 22-year-old was providing his services for West Ham last season on-loan off the back of falling behind Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers in the squad list for the Gunners.
The defender displayed great performances with his time spent at West Ham, and with the addition of Hector Bellerin also fighting for the right-back position, Arsenal fans all round the pool table were sure the loan move was to be made into a permanent one.
Although Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been reported to be happy with the players progress another loan spell will likely occur with clubs to the likes of Sunderland, Stoke, Southampton and West Ham all touted to be keen.
A group of Arsenal fans around the dart board are hoping to see the return of Jenkinson for next season and feel he is an excellent squad player!
