Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce says the club have a agreed a deal with Arsenal to sign defender Carl Jenkinson.

The defender has struggled with injuries in recent times, limiting his opportunities at the Emirates.

Now the club just need to agree personal terms with the former Charlton player.

Jenkinson, who has one cap for England, spent last season on loan at West Ham before an injury ended his season early.

The right-back has managed just five appearances for Arsenal this season.
