Transfer News: Arsenal defender offered escape route to Championship club

Since coming back from injury, Carl Jenkinson has not had the best of times for the club. Due to Hector Bellerin’s injury, Jenkinson, has seen some game time of late but has struggled. With Jenkinson’s struggles in mind, The Mirror reports that Championship, Aston Villa are interested in taking him on loan.  

After a successful season on loan at West Ham, Jenkinson suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury and was out for the subsequent 10 months. Steve Bruce is keen on the fullback, while Arsene Wenger has also sanctioned the move, although he is not overly keen on Jenkinson leaving in January. 

With Hector Bellerin back and Gabriel seemingly an adequate backup, the move might just be wise for Jenkinson.
