West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has hinted that his club may be signing Carl Jenkinson permanently at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old Arsenal defender is currently on loan at Upton Park, meaning that he is not eligible to feature against his parent club on March 14.
Asked on Twitter if Jenkinson was available to play against the Gunners, Gold replied: "He will not play against Arsenal. This year."
