Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has been in desperate need for a left-back, and he finally has one.
On Saturday, the Championship outfit announced via their official website that Jack Robinson has joined the club on a free transfer.
The 24-year-old, who began his career at Liverpool, spent the last four years at Queens Park Rangers, apart from during the 2014-15 campaign where he was at Huddersfield Town on loan.
Robinson was a promising talent at Anfield, but he was unable to hold down a regular spot in the first team.
He did, though, win the League Cup with the Reds in 2012, but he now finds himself taking on a new challenge at the City Ground.
Robinson, who made 34 appearances for QPR last season, has penned a two-year contract.
The deal was a no-brainer from Forests’s point of view given that Robinson was available for free.
Judging by the reaction on Twitter, the fans are delighted by the news, and some think the left-back’s arrival has boosted the club’s Premier League promotion hopes.
#NFFC are delighted to announce promotion.
