Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter are buzzing after the club announced the signing of Carl Jenkinson from Arsenal on a three-year deal.
It was previously suggested that the 27-year-old would be arriving at the City Ground on loan, but the right-back has, in fact, joined the East Midlands club on a permanent deal.
Jenkinson clearly has enough talent to be a handy player in this division as he was once considered good enough to play for the Three Lions.
A number of Forest fans praised their club for this signing.
Good signing something we desperately needed just need to sign another goalkeeper as we are short in that area 😜 #NFFC

Other fans weren’t too fixated on the fact they’ve just signed a former England international as they were more overjoyed by the news that their team have finally brought in a right-back.
Need a right back. Sign a right back. #nffc

I’m very happy with the Jenkinson signing, we needed a right back and we’ve signed someone who’s probably going to be one of the best in the league once he gets going. I still think we need another striker and a box to box midfielder but there’s still time. #NFFC

#nffc We're signing so many goalkeepers no one will be able to get past us 💪
Oh and we got a Right Back! There must have been one hell of a shooting star somewhere.
