Lansbury lands at Forest

The 21-year-old is the seventh permanent signing made by Forest

since the Al Hasawi family’s takeover of the npower Championship

club, in addition to the loan signings of Daniel Ayala and Sam


Lansbury has spent loan spells with Norwich and West Ham in the

last two seasons, helping both win promotion to the Premier


The England Under-21 international has been unable to break into

Arsene Wenger’s midfield at the Emirates Stadium and has now opted

for a permanent switch away.

Forest chairman Omar Al Hasawi 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.”
