Carl Jenkinson TEAMtalk

Carl Jenkinson has been told to find a new club by Arsenal, who will not stand in his way if he wishes for more game time elsewhere.

The 27-year-old has a host of clubs keen on his signature, with Aston Villa leading the chase, although it might depend on their promotion as Premier League sides Crystal Palace and West Ham are keen to offer him the chance to remain in London – whilst newly promoted Norwich City are also keeping tabs.

Jenkinson – who earned his sole England cap in 2012 and has one year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium – featured in a handful of games for Unai Emery this season, and can play anywhere across the back four.

Having signed for Arsenal back in 2011, the full-back has previously spent two years on loan at West Ham, while he spent last season at Birmingham City in the Championship.

Reports on Sunday claimed that Jenkinson is one of three players that Arsenal will offer to Palace in a cash-plus-player offer for Wilfried Zaha.
