Carl Jenkinson is leaving Arsenal after eight years in north London
Nottingham Forest have signed defender Carl Jenkinson on a three-year deal from Arsenal.
Jenkinson joins for an undisclosed fee and is available to face Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday, live on Sky Sports, as Forest continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign after losing to West Brom on Saturday.
The 27-year-old right-back only played eight games for Arsenal last season across all competitions, with just three coming in the Premier League, and was keen on a move that would provide more first-team football.

Jenkinson joined Arsenal from Charlton in 2011 and featured 70 times over eight years, going on loan to West Ham twice, where he notched up 52 Premier League appearances, and also spent time on loan at Birmingham.
Sky Sports News understands fellow Championship club West Brom were interested in signing Jenkinson earlier in the window.
