Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Sammy Ameobi, who was available as a free agent following his departure from Bolton.

Ameobi has signed a 12-month contract at the City Ground and linked up with his new teammates for the first time on Monday, as they reported for pre-season training at the picturesque Wollaton Park.

Having terminated the final year of his deal with Wanderers, the 27-year-old admits he is 'raring to go' at his new club, having jumped at the opportunity to remain in the Championship.

"I'm very happy," Ameobi told iFollow Forest. "Obviously I know the history of this club, it's a really great club and I'm happy to be a part of it moving forward.

"I've played against Forest a few times recently and I know the quality of the players here. The stadium is also a fantastic place to be so that was a massive attraction and a reason for me moving here.

"I'm hoping to excite people. I'm a player who likes to create opportunities and score goals so hopefully I can do that this season.

"I've had my holidays, I've come back fighting fit and now I'm raring to go."
