Jenkinson returns to West Ham

first_img Jenkinson, 23, impressed whilst on loan at Upton Park last season and will now return to form part of Slaven Bilic’s squad. He featured in 32 of West Ham’s Premier League games and will again be looking to add more Premier League experience under his belt whilst away from the Emirates Stadium. West Ham have re-signed Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson on a season-long loan – with the England international also penning a new long-term deal with the Gunners. “I’m really happy to be back after last year,” Jenkinson told West Ham’s official website. “It was a good season for the club and a good season for myself.” Despite his successful stint with the Hammers last season, Jenkinson will now be working under a new boss in Bilic and knows he has to impress all over again. “To be honest I just wanted to come back here and I’m happy everything’s been sorted out. I’ve got another season here and I can’t wait,” he added. “I’m a young player and I haven’t had too many experiences of different clubs, but I loved every minute of it here. “Everything about it is fantastic – it’s a real family club, the lads are great and the fans are great, so it ticks all the boxes you want when you join a football club. “I’ve got to come in, show what I can do and prove myself to a new manager. That keeps you on your toes and I’ve got to go and do that in pre-season. I’m looking forward to it. Despite a temporary departure from Arsenal for the second successive year for Jenkinson, who joined the Gunners from Charlton in 2011, his new contract suggests he does have a future at the Emirates Stadium. “Carl Jenkinson has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal and re-joined West Ham United on loan for the 2015/16 season,” a statement on the club’s website read. Press Association “Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Carl on his new contract and wish him the best for the upcoming season with West Ham. The contract is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.” Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who is in Singapore with his squad ahead of their participation in the Barclays Asia Trophy, believes the deal will benefit all parties as his squad already boast a number of talented right-back options. “He has moved because he had the confidence of West Ham,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. “We have the emergence of Hector Bellerin, we have (Mathieu) Debuchy, we have (Calum) Chambers. 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.” last_img read more
