Nottingham Forest sign Lansbury from Arsenal

Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Henri Lansbury from Arsenal on a four-year contract.

The England Under-21s midfielder made his Gunners first-team debut in 2007 aged just 17 but failed to make more than a handful of appearances for the club.

The 21-year-old also enjoyed loan spells at Scunthorpe, Watford, Norwich City and West Ham, helping the latter to promotion last season and new Forest chairman Omar Al Hasawi was full of praise for Lansbury, who becomes Sean O'Driscoll's seventh summer signing at the City Ground.

He told the club's official website: "Henri joins us as a young player with a rich pedigree and fits the bill perfectly as the kind of talented player that our manager Sean O'Driscoll is intent on bringing into the club."

Lansbury could be in line to make his debut against Charlton on Saturday.
