According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are interested in signing Carl Jenkinson on loan when the January transfer window opens.
The 24 year old has struggled to find his best form since returning from injury, with Arsene Wenger admitting the player is suffering from a loss of confidence.
It’s a move that makes sense on a number of levels. Now that Hector Bellerin is back, Jenkinson’s chances of playing are limited, and getting some regular football under his belt would be a good thing.
Also, Aston Villa currently have Alan Hutton at right-back.
So, signing Jenkinson, or Bandage-head Bob who lives in a shack and who always has a bandage on his head but nobody knows why, would be an improvement on that situation.
The transfer window opens in around 20 days, by the way. Draxler? Stop it.
