According to The Mirror, Crystal Palace have decided against signing Carl Jenkinson after failing to agree personal terms with the defender.
The 24-year-old appeared to be on the verge of sealing a switch to Selhurst Park earlier this week when Sam Allardyce confirmed that Arsenal had accepted an offer, thought to be in the region of £7 million.
Wenger had hinted earlier on Thursday morning that the ball was in Jenkinson’s court.
“Jenkinson is a possibility to go to Palace but it’s not finalised,” he told his pre-Burnley press conference. “It’s basically down to him to find an agreement with them.”
With 12 days remaining of the January transfer window there’s still plenty of time for the player to find another club.
Championship side Aston Villa have been monitoring his situation, while the likes of Watford, Hull and West Ham – where he spent two spells on loan – have also been linked.
Arseblog News doesn’t want to admit that we may have jinxed Jenko’s deal…but we may have done. Sorry mate.
