Nottingham Forest have announced the signing of Dutch goalkeeper Dorus de Vries on a free transfer.The 32 year old stopper brings an array of experience to The City Ground following his departure from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
De Vries, who has also played in Scotland and his native Holland, has secured an immediate return to the Championship after Wolves’ relegation last season, signing a two-year deal with The Reds.
Arguably his most impressive season to date came while at Swansea in the 2009-10 campaign – he kept 25 clean sheets, scooping the Golden Glove award in the process, as The Swans narrowly missed out on a Championship playoff berth.
Forest manager Billy Davies was delighted to welcome him into the pack.
He said: “Dorus is a very good signing for us. We have a good, young pool of goalkeepers at the club but he brings with him an abundance of experience which will be of benefit to everyone.
“He played a pivotal role in Swansea’s meteoric rise through the leagues and was unfortunate not to get more games at Wolves.
“To sign a goalkeeper of his calibre on a free transfer is a great piece of business.”
De Vries’ shirt sponsorship is now available from £645 + VAT. For more information, call the Commercial team on 0115 982 4450, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
