Boateng joins Reds

Published Add your comment

Nottingham Forest have signed free agent George Boateng on a one-year contract.

The 35-year-old, who played under Reds boss Steve McClaren at Middlesbrough, becomes the third new signing at the City Ground this summer following the return of Andy Reid and the arrival of Jonathan Greening.

Boateng first came to England in December 1997 when he completed a £250,000 move to Coventry before joining Midlands rivals Aston Villa for £4.5million in July 1999.

A disagreement with then-manager Graham Taylor saw him leave Villa Park for Middlesbrough in a £5million deal in August 2002, ahead of a £1million switch to Hull.

Upon leaving the KC Stadium in 2010, Boateng trained with West Brom and Celtic but ended up in Greece and spent the 2010/11 campaign with Skoda Xhanthi.
