England beat Finland for Arsenal fullback Jenkinson
Having represented Finland at Under-21 level, there is some red tape that needs sorting before Jenkinson can commit his future to England.
That is what he wants to do though, and boss Roy Hodgson is keen to see the process completed quickly.
"He made it very clear he wanted to play for England," said Hodgson.
"We are now making overtures to FIFA to try and make certain we can have him as an England player."
