Reports are out claiming that Carl Jenkinson has no regrets leaving Arsenal for West Ham United on-loan this season.
The right-back made the temporary switch to the Hammers last summer.
“It was a big decision,” he told Sport magazine.
“But [Mathieu] Debuchy came through the door for £12m, and I kind of knew a club doesn’t pay that money for a player and not play him.
“I didn’t want another season of just sitting on the bench, so I spoke to the boss and he agreed it would be a good idea for me to get a season of experience under my belt in the Premier League.
“It’s definitely been the right decision for me. It’s been the first time I’ve played regular football week in, week out, and that’s all a footballer really wants to do.”
