Arsenal’s defender Carl Jenkinson have confirmed leaving the club to join Championship side Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal.

Jenkinson joined the Championship side for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year contract.

“Thanks for everything and good luck at @NFFC,” the premier league outfit tweeted on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old defender had 70 appearances for Arsenal in eight years after joining Arsenal from Charlton Athletic as a teenager in 2011.

He played eight times in 2018-19, three of those games was in the Europa League.

He was loaned out from Arsenal to West Ham United in 2015-16 and 2016-17 before joining Birmingham City in August 2017, only to be injured on his debut.

Having dislocated his shoulder after just 32 minutes against Reading, he was out for five months before returning in January, by which time Steve Cotterill was in charge.

But Jenkinson made only eight further appearances for Blues and did not figure again following Gary Monk’s first two games in charge in March.

Forest began the new league campaign on Saturday with a 2-1 home defeat by West Bromwich Albion, in new Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi’s first game in charge.
