Reports are out claiming that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed the reasons behind Carl Jenkinson’s loan to West Ham United.
The 23-year-old defender will spend a second season-long loan with the Hammers after impressing at Upton Park last term.
Jenkinson is seen as a player for the future at Arsenal but Wenger feels he needs another season of regular game time to help force his way into the Gunners line-up.
“We have the emergence of Hector Bellerin, we have (Mathieu) Debuchy, we have (Calum) Chambers,” said Wenger.
“We are a bit congested in an area where you do not find many right-backs all over the world.
“He will continue his development with West Ham. I found that all are winners there – West Ham and Arsenal and Jenkinson.”
