It is now official, Carl Jenkinson is no longer an Arsenal player after signing for Championship side Nottingham Forest
The 27-year-old defender made 41 Premier League appearances for Arsenal in his eight years with the club and gained one England international cap.

This is a good move for the Harlow born right-back and will give him an opportunity to resurrect his career. He never made the breakthrough at Arsenal and it became a running joke that he was still with the club after so many years when he was clearly not up to the Arsenal standard.
That said, I have no doubt that every Arsenal fan will wish him the very best in the future, he was a trier and always gave his all, even if it was not quite enough.
The reported £2 Million fee seems a little on the low side in this inflated market but at the end of the day it is still a couple of million and his wages are removed from the wage bill.
