According to The Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are looking into signing Carl Jenkinson on loan from Arsenal as they aim for promotion – exciting our resident Villans in the Transfer Tavern.
Our local supporters of the men from Villa Park have not felt this positive about their team for some time after seasons of pretty awful performances.
That, famously, all culminated in the club’s relegation from the Premier League last season but now under Steve Bruce things are looking far brighter.
Indeed, they won at the weekend against Wigan and are now just four points off of the play-off places in 13th position.
The Championship is famed for being one of the most competitive divisions around and so January will naturally prove crucial in the battles at both ends of the table with Villa seemingly looking at Jenkinson as their respective edge.
The right back has not had the career he would have envisaged so far at Arsenal with Hector Bellerin by a fair distance the club’s most important player in that area, and our landlord reckons a loan deal would be perfect.
Would you take Jenkinson, Villa fans? Let us know below!
