Carl Jenkinson faces a tough decision on his international career but he insists it is not on the agenda right now.

The Arsenal defender has a British father and a Finnish mother and has represented both England and Finland at youth level. However he is still eligible for either country because he has yet to make a senior international appearance.

Jenkinson has settled in well at Emirates Stadium since his summer move from Charlton and looks a big prospect for the future. Whether that future lies with England or Finland remains to be seen.

"Everyone knows I've got a choice to make on that front," Jenkinson told Arsenal Player. "But at the moment I'm just concentrating on my club football, that's my main aim.

"I honestly could not tell you what my decision will be [between England and Finland] because it's something I'm going to have to think about in depth. But I'm not in that position yet so I'm just concentrating on Arsenal and doing the best I can here."

The full interview with Carl is now available on Arsenal Player.
