How Twitter reacted as Birmingham swooped for Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall

It was a busy Monday morning as far as Birmingham City boss Harry Redknapp was concerned as Arsenal’s defensive duo of Cohen Bramall and Carl Jenkinson have both joined on season-long loans.

Speaking after his side’s defeat at Burton Albion on Friday evening the former Tottenham manager expressed his desire to add to his squad, claiming that without new arrivals it would be a tough year.

And it seems that someone high up at St Andrew’s firmly got the message, with a statement on Birmingham’s official website announcing the arrivals of 25-year-old Jenkinson and 21-year-old Bramall.

Jenkinson has been at the Emirates since arriving from Charlton back in 2011 but has struggled for regular first-team opportunities in the past few years, spending time on-loan at West Ham, whilst it seems that Arsene Wenger has sent youngster Bramall out on-loan to gain vital first-team exposure.

Both players are expected to be signed on and register in time to feature for the Blues during this week’s Carabao Cup second round clash, when they face tough opposition in Premier League side Bournemouth.
