Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Brighton front man Chris O’Grady.
The 29-year-old has arrived on a season-long loan.
Nottingham-born O’Grady brings a wealth of Football League experience to Trentside at a time when The Reds are without injured strikers Britt Assombalonga and Matty Fryatt.
After departing boyhood club Leicester City in 2007, O’Grady represented the likes of Rotherham, Oldham and Rochdale before winning promotion to the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday.
He later joined Barnsley, who were relegated from the second tier in 2013-14 despite his impressive return of 15 goals in 40 appearances.
O’Grady’s record attracted Brighton, for whom he has featured regularly since his arrival on the south coast.
He will now spend the rest of the 2015-16 campaign with The Reds.
