The popular midfielder was bowled over by fans who had taken to the web in an attempt to convince him to sign for The Reds.
And he admits that their support was one of the major factors behind his return. He said: “I was on holiday and looking on Twitter and I saw that they had asked me to come. I answered the call!
“I was really pleased when I had this call from the fans so I have to say thank you to them. Hopefully we can win promotion for them.”
The Algerian international - the club’s first signing under the leadership of the Al Hasawi family - has signed a three-year deal after Forest paid Wolves an undisclosed fee for his services.
