Charlton youngster Carl Jenkinson has rejected the offer of a new contract - and could be poised for a dream summer move to Arsenal.
The 19-year-old left-back recently broke into Chris Powell's first team but now looks set to leave The Valley at the end of the season with his performances having reportedly caught the eye of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
"We've worked hard to convince Carl that he would be a key figure in Chris Powell's plans going forward," chairman Michael Slater told the club's official website.
"But regrettably Carl will not sign the contract and has indicated he wishes to leave the club at the end of the season.
"Having been with the club for 11 years and recently described his run of games in the first team as `a dream come true', it is a real shame that he appears to have decided his future lies elsewhere."
Better news for the Addicks is that 20-year-old right-back Chris Solly has agreed a new two-year deal.
