Though Carl Daniel Jenkinson has agreed to a new five-year contract (expiring in 2020) on an increased wage of £45,000-per-week, and is a boyhood Arsenal fan, he joins West Ham on a season-long loan deal after the Hammers agreed to pay a loan fee of around £2million. Previously “his athletic style of play allowed him to create opportunities on the right flank, but his delivery was inconsistent at best and most of the time poor. At West Ham… Jenkinson has vastly improved, especially offensively, and is now better than Debuchy.” The 23 year old has the added advantage that he ran for the school and the district and played a key role in West Ham’s surprise revival since joining on loan. Therefore he could yet be part of Arsene Wenger's long term plans, as the Gunners boss refused to let him go permanently. “The modern-day full-back has to get forward and you have to get back if the attack breaks down,” Jenkinson says. Wise words from one so young, and wiser still if you add the SoccerStarz Arsenal F.C. Carl Jenkinson figure to your collection.
