Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson joins Nottingham Forest

Carl Jenkinson

Bengaluru, August 7: Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson has joined Championship side Nottingham Forest on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

It is Nottingham's eighth summer transfer window signing for the season.

The club began the new season on Saturday with a 1-2 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion, in new manager Sabri Lamouchi's first game in charge.

The 27-year-old defender began his career with Charlton Athletic before the Gunners in June, 2011. He spent the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons on loan at West Ham United followed by a loan spell at Championship club Birmingham City during the 2017-18 season.

Jenkinson made a total of 70 appearances for Arsenal scoring one goal, against Norwich City.

In the 2018-19 season, Jenkinson played eight games for Arsenal, three of those in the UEFA Europa League.

"Thanks for everything and good luck at @NFFC," Arsenal tweeted from their official handle.

Jenkinson, whose mother is Finn, represented Finland at Under-21 level before committing his future to England after talks with then manager Roy Hodgson.

He made his senior debut for the Three Lions as one of six debutants as a 74th-minute substitute for Glen Johnson in a 4-2 friendly defeat against Sweden in Stockholm in November, 2012.
