With the January transfer window nearing its conclusion, Arsene Wenger was asked about Carl Jenkinson’s future at the club.
The England right back has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace, but the manager told the media on Monday that the defender is not near to a move.
- 'Welbeck gives huge offensive potential'
- 'Niang will be an asset for Watford'
- Wenger on Benzema, transfers, Debuchy
on Carl Jenkinson…There’s no news about him at all.
on whether there’s a possibility he could leave in January…We are still open because we have many players in his position, but at the moment it doesn’t look like something will happen.
on whether Jenkinson’s move to Palace is dead…For us, no. For him? I don’t know.
on whether it would be a permanent deal…Yes.
on if Jenkinson failing to move causes a problem with reintegrating him…No, no. He is integrated. We respect any professional decision. Carl Jenkinson is a great player who has a great attitude. There is no problem on that front. After that, he must find happiness with his conditions and where he goes and feel comfortable.
More polls coming soon!
