Arsenal defender linked with January exit 0

Posted on December 13, 2016 by Milos Markovic

England international Carl Jenkinson has been reintroduced to the Gunners first-team fold this season, but the 24-year-old defender struggled to make his mark in the absence of injured Hector Bellerin.

His performances against Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in November have been particularly below par and the England right-back looks set to leave Emirates during the January transfer window.

Having spent the previous two seasons on loan at West Ham, Jenkinson is in line for another loan spell, with Championship side Aston Villa keen to acquire his services when the transfer market reopens.

Where does Isaac Hayden’s future lie? 1

Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden recently returned to the Emirates Stadium after a successful loan spell with Hull City, and will seeking talks over his first-team chances with his parent club in 2016/17. The 21-year-old made 18 appearances in the Championship for the Tigers as they sealed promotion back to the Premier League, and was given a glowing endorsement by his City manager Steve Bruce upon his exit.

Hayden is now of the age where he needs regular game time to continue his development, but with only 12 months left on his Arsenal contract, his future may lie elsewhere. Hull City have been very keen to sign him on a permanent deal, and if he doesn’t get assurances from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, Hayden could well take the Tigers up on their interest.

Arsenal’s Isaac Hayden could make permanent move to Hull City 0

Arsenal defensive midfielder Isaac Hayden is the subject of interest from Hull City, who are keen to turn his current loan deal into a permanent move in the summer. The 20-year-old, who signed for Arsenal from Southend in 2008, has been on the periphery with the Gunners, and has instead found game time with the Tigers.

The stiff competition for places in the Arsenal midfield means next season won’t be any easier for him to breakthrough the ranks, meaning Hayden has a big decision to make on his long-term future with the Gunners. Hull City have been impressed with his form since his temporary spell at the KC Stadium, and want him for 2016/17.

Arsenal have the chance to end their nine year wait for a trophy as they face Hull at Wembley in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

The Gunners trophy draught is well-documented, but the team from north London are favourites to overcome Premier League rivals Hull to win that illusive silverware on Saturday.

The Gunners go into the final in top form, having won the last five Premier League games of the season and securing a Champions League spot for next season. Those five wins followed the Gunners victory over holders Wigan in the semi-finals.
