Jenkinson joins for an undisclosed fee and is available to face Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday, 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.
