Greg’s A Red

27 July 2012

Greg Halford has become the latest recruit to Sean O'Driscoll's new-look Nottingham Forest defence.

The Reds have paid an undisclosed fee to Portsmouth for the 27 year old, whose arrival follows that of Welsh international defender Danny Collins on Wednesday. 

Halford brings vast experience to Sean O'Driscoll's Forest squad as he is comfortable operating at right back or in the centre of defence but has also on occasions lined-up in midfield and even up front. 

Forest Chairman Omar Al Hasawi said: "Greg is another important component in the squad that Sean is assembling and we're delighted he chose to join us." 

Halford launched his career with Colchester, making more than 150 appearances, before moving to Reading in 2007. 

Later that same year he joined Sunderland - for a transfer fee reported to have been in the region of £3.5million - but found first team opportunities hard to come by on Wearside. 

After loan spells with Charlton and Sheffield United he linked-up with Wolves in 2009 and joined Portsmouth last year after a successful loan spell at Fratton Park.
