Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Carl Jenkinson, famously, is the last man standing from Arsenal’s fabled British core and while the club have released quite a few players, somehow Carl Jenkinson remains an Arsenal player and has even been pictured in the new kit.
On 30 June 2019, Carl Jenkinson was no longer meant be an Arsenal player but while the likes of Petr Cech, Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey all had contracts that expired at the same time, the latter were formally released by the club.
There has been zero talk about a new deal for Jenkinson, nor should there be. Similarly, there has been little talk of interest from other clubs either.
It’s all very strange.
Except it isn’t when you realise that his contract expires in 2020 not 2019.
Most, I assume, myself included, have been operating from the expiry date given on Transfermarkt. This has been so widely spread it has just become the accepted truth.
