With the arrival of Calum "Thirty-Six" Chambers, a lot of us were left wondering what was going to become of young Carl Jenkinson. Not in a life sense - he's not going to die, or be shot into space, or anything dramatic - but more in a "where does he fit" sense.
Today, we may have the answer to that question - he'll fit in, at least for a season on loan, over in East London. At least according to the Telegraph:
Jenkinson, 22, has been made available following Arsenal's £16 million signing of Southampton's Calum Chambers and West Ham are on the brink of beating competition from Hull City, Swansea City and Queens Park Rangers to take the right-back for the forthcoming campaign.
The rest of that story is pure gold - Jenkinson may show up to a managerless West Ham, because Sam Allardyce just got dissed on Twitter. Or something. I'm really glad I'm a fan of a club that doesn't deal with shenanigans.
