Crystal Palace have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Arsenal over the transfer of right-back, Carl Jenkinson.

At this point, it is not clear if the deal is a loan or a permanent one.

Sam Allardyce was speaking at his press conference ahead of their game against  Bolton in the FA Cup on Tuesday night. Arsene Wenger, speaking before the game against Swansea, said he expected the deal to be sorted in a few days.

Carl signed for Arsenal in 2011 when he was signed from Charlton. A life-long Gooner, fans really wanted him to succeed at the club but it was not to be.

Dropped from the side this season after a barrage of abuse from fans after a poor performance, it would seem like a permanent deal would most likely suit all parties better.

A fee of £3m was mentioned but this is unconfirmed.
