Carl Jenkinson: Hoping to kick on next season

Sagna has emerged as a target for the big-spending French club and has done little to dampen the speculation.

"Of course it makes me proud to read PSG are interested," said Sagna, quoted in the Daily Star Sunday. "They are a very attractive club.

"Personally, I've not been approached by PSG. I don't know if they have contacted my agent or if these are rumours.

"I don't close any door. I could very well extend my contract here in London but equally I could leave at the end of the season. I only have one year left on my contract - we will see."

Sagna's exit would present an opening for Jenkinson and the 21-year-old right-back, who made his senior England debut in November, is eyeing a breakthrough season.

"Next season is a big one for me and I want to grab it with both hands," said Jenkinson.

"I want to be the first-choice right-back at this club and I am not going to stop working until I get there.

"It's what I want to achieve and after that I want to stay in the position for years to come. I've got to work my socks off and keep developing if I want to do it."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
