Former England manager Steve McClaren has been named by Nottingham Forest as their new boss.

McClaren has signed a three-year contract at the City Ground and takes over from Billy Davies, who was sacked on Sunday.


 

McClaren, recently linked with the vacancy at Aston Villa, returns to club management in England - having previously been with Middlesbrough - after time in Holland and Germany with FC Twente and Wolfsburg.
