Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson is determined to make himself a regular first-team player under manager Arsene Wenger.

The 20-year-old right-back joined the Gunners from Charlton Athletic last summer on a contract that runs until June 2015, and made 14 appearances in 2011/12.

Having featured in Arsenal's three Premier League matches so far this season, in which they are yet to concede a single goal, Jenkinson is now keen on playing regularly for the north London club.

At home

"I think it's only natural that the longer you're at a club, the more at home you feel," he told the club's official website.

"Coming here last year I felt a bit blown away with everything. This year I've come back and felt like one of the boys.

"It was different this year and it was nice because you like to feel comfortable and part of things. I'm happy with things at the moment and hopefully we just move on from here.

"My ambition for my whole career is to play for this football club. I want to be good enough and make my mark here. I won't be happy until I'm playing week-in, week-out. That's what I want to achieve."

Arsenal host Southampton at the Emirates in their next Premier League game on Saturday.
