Arsenal boss Wenger delighted with Jenkinson arrival

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is delighted with their capture of former Charlton Athletic defender Carl Jenkinson.

The highly-rated full back became Wenger's first capture of the summer when he put pen to paper on a move from Charlton Athletic.

"We were watching Carl for some time and he is a player with great talent and natural defensive ability, but also a powerful player who likes to go forward," the Arsenal manager told the club's website.

"He is a strong defender who has made quick progress with Charlton and also with the younger age categories for the Finland national team, showing many great qualities.

"We are excited that Carl is joining us and he will add strength to our squad."
