Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has held talks with Carl Jenkinson about his future at the club.
The fullback has had an impressive season at West Ham and his performances has seen his stock rise immensely.
And after talks, the Frenchman has hinted Jenkinson could spend a second year out on loan.
“That’s what I have to decide at the end of the season,” said Wenger on the Sky Sports website.
“He needs experience. Carl is a young, very promising right-back with top quality and he had a good year where he has really moved forward. It is important that if he comes back he has a good chance to play.”
