According to The Mirror, Crystal Palace are working to sign Carl Jenkinson on a permanent basis this month.
Indeed, the report suggests they’re trying to make it happen ASAP so that the 24 year old can play in the Premier League this weekend.
The Eagles face West Ham – a club that Jenkinson was loaned to twice, and current Palace boss Sam Allardyce is the one that brought him there in 2014 so knows him well.
Jenkinson had been strongly linked with a move to Hull City, but this was before Mike Phelan was sacked and replaced by Portuguese Marco Silva.
Having fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, it seems a move away is inevitable now for the lifelong Arsenal fan.
More as it happens.
