Andy Reid has spoken of his delight after completing his return to Nottingham Forest.

After being released from Bloomfield Road, Reid has signed a two-year deal with with Forest, to seal an emotional return to the City Ground.

"I can see where the club is going and it's something I really want to be part of," he said. "I signed here when I was 14, was nurtured through to the first team and everyone was so good to me.

"But in football you can't just make decisions based on sentiment, so I met with the manager and had a good chat with him. As soon as I walked out of the office I knew that I wanted to play for him."


Reid becomes manager Steve McClaren's first signing since taking over from Billy Davies following the Scot's sacking last month.

McClaren hopes that the signing of Reid will signal a renewed sense of optimism around the City Ground. "I hope this signing sends out a message to all the fans that this is the kind of quality we want to bring to Forest to achieve what we want to," he said.

"He's 28 and has got great experience and in a young dressing room he can become one of our leaders as well."
