The Hammers boss says his side are on the verge of wrapping up a deal for the 22-year-old – despite competition from Hull City for the defender’s signature
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is hoping his club can complete their loan move for Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson within the next 24 hours.
The Hammers have beaten Hull City to the signature of the 22-year-old, despite Steve Bruce’s side tabling a £3 million offer.
Goal understands, though, that Jenkinson wanted to remain in London and believes he still has a future at Arsenal, despite the arrivals of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers this summer.
“We’re interested in signing Carl Jenkinson from Arsenal on loan,” Allardyce told talkSPORT.
“I’m hoping it’s going to be completed in the next twenty four hours. We’re hoping that’s going to be OK.”
