Carl Jenkinson: 'I'm fit enough to start for West Ham United'

On-loan West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson believes that he is ready to start a game for his new side after recovering from injury.

West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson has claimed that he is feeling fit enough to finally start a game for the Upton Park outfit.

The Arsenal loanee has managed to shake off a knock he picked up in the summer, which saw him sidelined for nearly two months.

Jenkinson is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News: "The coaching staff and physios are being careful with me as I was out for six weeks and before the Hull game I only trained for two days.

"I was out for quite a long time, you can't just throw someone back in.

"I don't know whether I will start from now on but my fitness feels good and I will keep working hard but it is the gaffer's decision. I think I am ready to start."

Jenkinson came off the bench in West Ham's last two games, against Hull City and Liverpool.
