Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson has completed his move to Championship side Nottingham Forest, with the centre-back rejoining the club he left two years ago.

The 27-year-old left Forest in 2011 on a free transfer, but has returned to the City Ground for £2.5million after agreeing a three-year deal. 

The Scottish champions had already rejected an offer of £1.5million early this summer, with the Hoops keen to hang onto the defender as they pushed for Champions League qualification. 

But after an increased bid from the English side, Wilson was free to discuss a move, and after completing all the formalities, will be available for their trip to Blackburn on Saturday. 

Despite their recent success in making it through to the Champion's League play-offs after defeating Elfsborg over two legs, manager Neil Lennon will be alarmed by the departures of some of his key players from recent seasons with Gary Hooper and Victor Wanyama both leaving Celtic Park joining Norwich and Southampton respectively. 

After overcoming their Swedish opponents, the Scottish outfit were drawn against Kazakhstan's Shakhter Karagandy earlier today, with the winners progressing through to the group stages.
