Report: Aston Villa eager to sign Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson on loan

Aston Villa are reportedly hoping to strike a deal with Arsenal to take right-back Carl Jenkinson on loan in January.

Aston Villa have expressed an interest in signing Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson on loan in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The 24-year-old has made five starts for the Gunners this season in all competitions, but struggled in his most recent appearance, last month's 2-0 home EFL Cup defeat to Southampton.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Villa boss Steve Bruce is looking for a fresh option in the right-back role which has been filled by Alan Hutton for most of the season.

Jenkinson suffered an injury to his cruciate ligament 10 months ago during a loan spell at West Ham United.
