NOTTINGHAM FOREST have completed the signing of Omar Richards from Bayern Munich.
The full-back has signed a four-year deal with Forest in a deal which will reportedly cost the club £10million in transfer fees.
The 24-year-old returns to England after one season in Germany with Bayern, having previously been with Fulham and Reading in England.
Richards made 17 appearances for the Bundesliga champions last season.
In a statement on the club’s website Richards said: “I’m thrilled to return to England by joining Nottingham Forest at such an exciting time.
“The club has enjoyed an incredible last few months and there’s great ambitions for the Premier League return.
“I’ve played against Forest in the past and they get such great backing from their fans, whilst the City Ground is an amazing place that I can now call home.
“I can’t wait to join up with the squad this week and begin preparations for the new season.”
Richards will link up with the squad ahead of their pre-season friendly on Tuesday against Burton Albion.
He has made one appearance for England’s Under 21 side.
