Nottingham Forest’s latest signing Dorus de Vries has told Forest Player that it ‘won’t be easy’ for him to pin down a permanent place between The City Ground sticks.The Dutchman this evening signed a two-year deal after completing a free transfer from recently-relegated Wolves, and will now join up with fellow ‘keepers Karl Darlow, Khaled Al-Rashidi and Dimitar Evtimov to prepare for the 2013-14 season.
Darlow had a promising spell as Forest’s number one following Lee Camp’s departure last season and de Vries knows it will take all his efforts to usurp the youngster in the coming campaign.
The 32 year old said: “It’s not going to be easy for me at all. There are great goalkeepers here at the club, there always have been.
“I’m just looking forward to coming in and working with them, then it will be a case of seeing who’s best – that’s all that matters. The manager will decide.
“Darlow did brilliantly when he played last season and he seems like a great talent. I’m looking forward to working with him.
“From my point of view I just want to work hard, be the best that I can and ensure that I am worthy of the jersey.”
