Greening Signs Three Year Deal With Forest

Greening Signs Three Year Deal With Forest

Fulham midfielder Jonathan Greening has today officially signed for Nottingham Forest.

According to the NFFC official site, the 32 year old has signed a three year deal, for an undisclosed fee. Greening becomes the second summer signing for Steve McClaren and follows Andy Reid, who rejoined the club a fortnight ago on a free transfer from Blackpool.

McClaren worked with Greening when the pair were at Manchester United and took the player with him, when he became manager of Middlesbrough in 2001, for a fee of £3m.

Greening went on to play for West Brom for almost 6 years and became an integral part of the squad at the Hawthorns, as well as club captain.

The midfielder can play anywhere across the middle of the park and has been deployed as both an attacking midfielder and a holding midfielder during his spells at Boro and WBA. He will be a more than adequate replacement for the recently departed Paul McKenna, who left the club for Championship rivals Hull City earlier this summer. Welcome to the City Ground Jonathan Greening.

Class. Him and the Moose will boss the middle of the park. Routledge may end up at the jacks as they've upped their bid to £1.8m, so I think 2 today is our lot. Left back anyone?

Yes class signing, and good news if we are keeping Moussi, we will be really strong in midfield but dare I mention the LB slot again, another CB and possibly another striker are required - though I hope Garner gets some game time under Shteeve as I think he is a classy player.

Another stand out signing, Greening is a seasoned veteran, a winner with class and quality on the ball. Along with Reid, formidable quality in midfield. The midfield project isn't over. A couple of wingers, and a couple of enforcers...and the midfield will finally(!) have the depth to compete come the 'middle' season. SA.
