Carl Jenkinson’s move from Arsenal to Crystal Palace stalled when he discovered Jeffrey Schlupp’s wages
A deal for Carl Jenkinson to move to Selhurst Park permanently looked close to completion when Palace agreed a fee with the Gunners, but Sam Allardyce revealed negotiations with the player’s agent were holding up the deal.
It is understood talks with Jenkinson were held up when the defender found out Palace were paying another January signing, Schlupp, £56,000 a week, with Jenkinson having been offered £35,000 a week to move to the club.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told a news conference: “There’s no news about him at all.
“We have many players in his position, but at the moment it doesn’t look like something will happen.”
The Gunners have also made Jenkinson’s fellow right-back Mathieu Debuchy available, but Wenger said that although the club have not yet received an offer for the Frenchman it was “still possible” he would be sold.
