New Nottingham Forest signing Albert Adomah has told Seat Pitch courtesy of the club’s media department that the size of the club drew him to the City Ground.

The flying winger checked in on Trentside last week, following his departure from Aston Villa at the end of last season.

The trickster has won promotion from the second tier twice. Last season’s success with Dean Smith’s side following on from automatic promotion with Middlesbrough in 2016.

Interest was rife in the 31-year-old but the lure of Forest was too good to turn down.

He told Seat Pitch, courtesy of the club’s media department: “Nottingham Forest is a massive football club. I know they’ve been in the Championship for a long time, but I know they won the European titles in the past.

“They are certainly one of the biggest clubs in the division and hopefully I can achieve something great during my time here.

“The past is the past and we now look towards the future. I firmly believe in something here.”

Adomah played for 20 minutes of Forest’s 3-0 win over Atromitos on Saturday evening and will look for more minutes when they face Olympiacos on Tuesday night.

The Championship stalwart is one of six new arrivals to pen terms at the City Ground this summer.

 

He has joined Aro Muric, Tiago Silva, Alfa Semedo, Yuri Ribeiro and Sammy Ameobi in signing for the Reds.

Adomah will hope to help Forest in performing better than their ninth-place finish in last season’s Championship.
