Arsenal right-back had also interested Hull City
Carl Jenkinson is set to complete at loan move to West Ham "within the next 24 hours", according to the Hammers' manager Sam Allardyce.

"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."
