Neither Jenkinson nor Bramall are close to breaking into Arsene Wenger’s first team this season.
Moreover, Wenger revealed over the weekend that Arsenal have to shift players out of the club before the Gunners can sign in any fresh faces.
Carl Jenkinson is getting used to Arsenal loan deals, having spent time on loan at West Ham in recent years.
As for Cohen Bramall, Arsenal fans are still trying to understand why Wenger plucked him from the non-league last season.
Birmingham’s rough start
It hasn’t been the greatest of starts for Birmingham in the Championship this season.
After four games of the new campaign, Birmingham have one win, one draw and two defeats on the board.
Last weekend they fell 2-1 at Burton Albion. The Blues are now in 14th place in the English second tier.
The tough games continue next weekend as Birmingham host Reading at St Andrew’s.
