London: West Ham signed Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson on a season-long loan on Thursday becoming the Hammers` sixth new face this summer.

Jenkinson, 22, joined Arsenal from Charlton in 2011 and earned his only England cap against Sweden 18 months later.

"I`m clearly seen as a big part of things here and hopefully I can prove my worth because it is an important year for me," said Jenkinson, who joins Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia, Cheikhou Kouyate, Aaron Cresswell and Diego Poyet in a new-look West Ham squad.

"I was flattered to have a lot of options but deep down, if I was being honest with myself, West Ham was always the place I wanted to go to."

"It`s one of them where I wanted to do the right professional thing and consider all the options, but in the back of my mind it was always West Ham and I`m just so glad it`s all worked out how I wanted it to in the end."
