Steve McClaren has made his first signing as manager by bringing midfielder Andy Reid back to Nottingham Forest.
The Republic of Ireland international moves to the City Ground on a free transfer after enjoying a short spell at Blackpool in the second half of last season.
Reid started his career at Forest having joined as a 14-year-old before playing for a host of clubs, including Charlton and Sunderland.
He has a wealth of Barclays Premier League experience, which will have undoubtedly attracted McClaren as the former England boss aims to lead Forest back into the top-flight.
Reid, who previously made 144 appearances for the Reds, has penned a two-year deal.
