Reports in the Birmingham Mail have linked Carl Jenkinson with a loan move to Aston Villa.

The Arsenal defender has had a couple of loans with West Ham in recent years and during the second spell he suffered a long-term injury.

That kept him out for 10 months but he has played a couple of games when Hector Bellerin was sidelined this season.

His performances haven’t been great but this hasn’t prevented rumours of another temporary loan spell away from the Emirates Stadium – Steve Bruce will reportedly make a move for the 24-year-old in January.

Jenkinson’s chances under Arsene Wenger are likely to be limited for the remainder of this season aren’t they?

Therefore an exit is probably on the cards and if he’s willing to drop down to the Championship to help Villa’s promotion challenge this could be a good move.
