The corporal, who made 70 appearances for the Gunners between 2011 and 2019, never quite captured that form which saw him earn a call up to the England squad, earning international cap.
He had loan spells at West Ham and Birmingham City, before moving to Forest permanently in 2019.
Injuries plagued his time there, but he was never able to maintain a regular spot and now finds himself heading to the A-League.
He will be keen to get his career back on track, and during his time at Arsenal he was the undisputed spoon-to-knife champion in regular tournaments on the training ground, which should put him in good stead with of the many passionate Gooners in Australia.
Good luck to him down there, may all his water flow clockwise and may his family stay safe from the chazwazzas as he earns his dollars.
