Boateng signing Complete

Boateng signing Complete

The signing of George Boateng was officially completed yesterday afternoon with the midfielder, as he told the official website, setting out his intentions early.

Boateng has spent a short spell with Celtic and played a year in Greece for Skoda Xanthi since leaving Hull and an unexpected return to English football is one he is looking to make the most of.

Having played out a decade plus career in this country previously exclusively in the top-flight it will be a different experience for him though, but he is up for it and wants to help Forest to promotion: 'I'm really excited to be back in England and I sincerely hope I can help bring success by the end of the season.

'I didn't expect this but I was very happy to get the opportunity to join a club like Forest. The manager asked me if I would like to come and train and things developed from there.

'I've spent all my time in England in the Premier League so this is something new for me but I would love to think I could get back into the top flight.'

Known well to Forest manager Steve McClaren, from their time together at Middlesbrough, the 35-year-old believes that he is the right man to take the club forward and get them back into the top-flight.

Doing 'everything he can to win games' is something that the former Dutch international intends to do and is up for a fight to keep his place in the starting 11.

Boateng will have a year at The City Ground, although this could become a longer stay if all works out this season...
