Traore agrees terms with The Reds

29 July 2016

Nottingham Forest have signed defender Armand Traore on a three-year deal effective from 1 August.

Having previously spent time with Monaco, Traore made the move to Arsenal in 2005 and made his debut for the Gunners in a Carling Cup victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns a year later. 

He gained a wealth of experience at the Emirates Stadium by playing against the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool before making a loan move to Portsmouth ahead of the 2008-09 campaign.

Traore’s time at Fratton Park brought regular Premier League and UEFA Cup football and enjoyed a memorable moment towards the end of the season when he scored in Pompey’s 3-1 win over Sunderland.

Another loan move followed as Traore enjoyed Serie A football with Juventus before he made a permanent switch to Queens Park Rangers at the beginning of the 2011-12 season.

He was a part of the Rangers side that secured Premier League survival on the final day of the campaign at Manchester City and although they were relegated the following year, he played a vital role in helping them bounce back at the first time of asking as they beat Derby County in the play-off final at Wembley.
