Arsenal and West Ham fans react on Twitter to Carl Jenkinson injury blow

Carl Jenkinson

West Ham's Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson is out injured for the season, it has been reported.

Right-back Carl Jenkinson has suffered an injury which could cause him to miss the rest of the season.

West Ham's official website stated Jenkinson's knee injury is 'significant', and he will be sent for further tests.

Jack Sullivan, son of co-owner David Sullivan, said via Twitter that Jenkinson is not expected to play again in 2015/16.

The defender is in the second year of his loan spell at West Ham, and had been expected to return to Arsenal at the end of the campaign.

The injury puts an end to his hopes of being selected in England's Euro 2016 squad. Jenkinson has been capped once by the Three Lions.

West Ham are well equipped to cope in his absence, having just signed right-back Sam Byram from Leeds United.

Jenkinson was expected to challenge Hector Bellerin at Arsenal next season, with Mathieu Debuchy unlikely to stay at the club. If his injury is as serious as described, he may not even be back in time to state his case in pre-season.
