David Prutton today explained why he rejected two Championship sides in favour of a return to Nottingham Forest, saying: 'They made me feel wanted.'
The midfielder (right) turned down Leeds United and home-town club Hull City in favour of a second spell at the City Ground.
The former England under-21 skipper signed until the end of the season, after Forest took over his Southampton contract.
And he said the decisive factor for him was how manager Colin Calderwood sold the club's ambitions to him.
'Colin Calderwood was a major influence in my decision. I know him from his days as a player at Forest and the way in which he outlined his ambitions for Forest made it an easy decision to make,' he said.
'Getting the chance to play for someone who believes in you and really believes in what he wants to do is a big thing for me.'
The 25-year-old added: 'Coming back to Forest feels right for me and I'm excited about returning to the City Ground.'
Prutton's initial goal is to play a part in Forest's promotion push and add to the 150 appearances he made for the Reds before his £2.5m transfer to the Saints in 2003.
