Following the arrival of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers, Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson has joined West Ham on a season long loan.

Jenks came to Arsenal from Charlton and has struggled to get much first team action with Bacary Sagna standing in his way, however after the Frenchman left for Man City, Arsene Wenger brought in two more defenders leaving Carl on the outside once more.

In a bid to give him some first team action and a chance to prove his worth he has gone on loan to West Ham for the whole season.

Jenkinson is one of those rare breeds of footballers, true fans of the club, someone who gets what we`re all about, and what he lacks in talent he more than makes up for in heart, hard work and commitment and I truly hope he proves himself worthy of our first team over the next 12 months.

Good luck Jenks.
