Hull City manager Mike Phelan has confirmed his side’s links with Arsenal outcast Carl Jenkinson.
Hull are suggested to be keen on securing the right-back services for the rest of the season and Phelan admits he wants to sign the Englishman.
“Yes, he’s been spoken about. But there are a few others in the hat for Carl,” Phelan said ahead of Friday’s game with Everton (via Sky Sports).
“I would love him to come here. I’ve spoken to staff at Arsenal and I’ve been encouraged by it.
“But I do also realise that there are other clubs interested in Carl. So that’s where we’re at at the moment and nothing definite has gone ahead and there are others.”
Hull are currently propping the table with just 12 points from 18 games. After a bright start, their thin squad is paying the price.
