Aaron Ramsey has taken to Twitter to wish Carl Jenkinson good luck after the Arsenal defender completed a loan move to West Ham United.

Jenkinson was heavily-tipped to move to the east London side after Arsenal signed France international Mathieu Debuchy and Southampton youngster Calum Chambers last month.

And Ramsey, who scored 16 goals in all competitions last season, issued his support for Jenkinson’s temporary move to the Hammers ahead of the new Premier League season.

Jenkinson vowed to prove his worth after sealing his move to the Hammers on Thursday night.

“It’s brilliant how it has turned out and I just want to thank the gaffer and Mr Sullivan and Mr Gold because they put in a big push to get me here,” said Jenkinson.

“I’m clearly seen as a big part of things here and hopefully I can prove my worth here because it is an important year for me.

“I was flattered to have a lot of options but, deep down, if I was being honest with myself West Ham was always the place I wanted to go to. It’s one of them where I wanted to do the right professional thing and consider all the options, but in the back of my mind it was always West Ham and I’m just so glad it’s all worked out how I wanted it to in the end.

“It will be brilliant to play here. I’ve got a lot of friends who are West Ham fans and I know how good the supporters are here. I’ve played here a couple of times so I know exactly what it is all about, so it’s going to be fantastic to be a part of that, to be honest.

“You get a great atmosphere here and the fans are great, so I just can’t wait to get a West Ham shirt on and get on the pitch and play. This is an exciting time for me, it really is.”
