New signing Joe Lolley said the long-term ambition of Nottingham Forest was a big factor in him signing for the club.
The winger has put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year contract after joining from Huddersfield Town and is eager to begin his Forest career.
He said: "I am delighted to sign. It is a big club with great ambitions and I am really looking forward to getting started.
"The club speaks for itself; everyone knows the history of the club and the manager as well was a massive attraction with the ambition. Long-term, it is a great club to be at."
The 25-year-old said the chance to work with Aitor Karanka was also a massive pull in signing for an undisclosed fee.
"As soon as I got the call to say that the manager was interested in me it was an easy decision," he added. "I have spoken to people who have worked with him before and they have only had good words to say about him. He has a great track record and hopefully we can continue that here.
"I have played in the Championship for three or four seasons and had plenty of games. It is a tough league; anyone can beat anyone but hopefully we can come out on top most weeks.
"I had a good win here and a bad loss previously but the atmosphere was always brilliant. The crowd gets behind the team and I can't wait to play in front of the fans."
