Carl Jenkinson: Agreed new long-term deal at Arsenal

Jenkinson, who joined the club in June 2011 after making just nine appearances for Charlton, has been rewarded for his fine form this term with a new improved contract.

The 20-year-old made 14 appearances in all competitions last season, but he has impressed this campaign after filling in for the injured Bacary Sagna in the opening weeks of the season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has seen enough to reward the full-back with a contract extension as he looks to secure his best young players on long-term deals.

Jenkinson's performances have earned a call-up to the England squad and he could make his debut in Wednesday's friendly with Sweden.

Arsenal are expected to confirm the news of Jenkinson's new deal later this week and the news will be a boost ahead of this weekend's North London derby with Tottenham.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
