Jenkinson in; new away kit launched
Not often that a player signs for two clubs in one day. Carl Jenkinson has signed a five-year contract at Arsenal and also agreed a season-long loan to West Ham. So plenty of signings this summer in Payet, Ogbonna. Obiang, Jenkinson, Randolph and Scottish left-back Stephen Hendrie (which was agreed last season). Meanwhile the club have launched the new away kit. Not sure about the slab of claret across the light blue shirt, prefer the old-fashioned twin hoops. But guess it could have been worse… the new kits can be pre-ordred from the West Ham store.
