Jenkinson has turned down advances from Swansea, Hull City and Sunderland to ensure he stays in London.

Hull had offered Arsenal £3million to take the England international to the KC Stadium permanently, but the Gunners are only willing to allow the 22-year-old to leave on loan.

Jenkinson joins Mauro Zarate, Cheikhou Kouyate, Aaron Cresswell, Diego Poyet and Enner Valencia as West Ham’s new faces ahead of the new Premier League season.
