West Ham United have confirmed that Carl Jenkinson will visit a specialist tomorrow to determine the extent of the injury which, it has been claimed, will keep him out of action for the rest of the season.

Co-owner David Sullivan's youngest son Jack claimed via social media this lunchtime that the on-loan full back, who suffered an injury to his left knee during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City would not play again this season as a result of the injury.

And whilst the club itself hasn't been quite so dismissive of Jenkinson's chances of pulling on a claret and blue shirt again, his injury was nonetheless described as "significant".

"West Ham United can confirm that Carl Jenkinson injured his left knee during the early stages of Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture with Manchester City," read a statement published on the club's website this afternoon (Tuesday).

"Unfortunately, it appears that Carl has suffered a significant injury and he will be assessed by a specialist in central London on Wednesday. A further update will be provided when the full extent of the injury has been confirmed."
