Nottingham Forest boss Joe Kinnear has admitted defeat in his attempt to sign Arsenal winger Jermaine Pennant on loan.
Kinnear is desperate to strengthen his struggling squad and had hoped to persuade Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to allow the England Under-21
international to gain some more first-team experience at The City Ground.
However, with a busy programme of Premiership and Champions League fixtures ahead, Arsenal decided to veto the move.
