McClaren lands Reid

Next Story

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.
