The 28-year-old left back joined the club from Southampton to become Sean O'Driscoll's third signing of the summer of 2012.
He played a part in The Saints' promotion to the Premier League last season and brings a wealth of experience to The City Ground.
He started his career at Brighton before enjoying spells at Leeds and Ipswich. Loan spells at Southend and Reading preceded a permanent switch to St Mary's.
He admitted that it was a wrench to leave the prospect of Premier League football on the South coast but was delighted with the opportunity to play first team football at Forest.
He signed as part of O'Driscoll's efforts to put together a back four from scratch and became the club's first permanent recognised left back since Julian Bennett.
