Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Carl Jenkinson is still in his long-term plans.
Jenkinson is returning to West Ham United on-loan this week after signing a new five-year deal with Wenger’s side.
“We have three right backs already in Debuchy, [Calum] Chambers and Bellerin,” Wenger said on the Sky Sports website.
“But we do not want to lose Carl Jenkinson – and that is why I extended his contract. But I don’t want four right-backs so this is a good compromise.
