Carl Jenkinson is closing in on a return to action after being sidelined for the past seven months.

The fullback picked up the injury when he was out on loan with West Ham. Out since the end of January with a torn ligament in his knee, at the time of writing he has been injured for 226 days.

Taking to Instagram, Jenks revealed that he is close to a comeback although it will certainly take him some time to get back any semblance of match fitness with Arsene Wenger pencilling him in for a November return barring any setbacks.

Good news, all the same.
