New Nottingham Forest forward Hillal Soudani is excited to test himself in English football having agreed to join the club for an undisclosed fee.

The Algerian international is set to make the switch from Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb and is eager to make an impression at The City Ground.

He said: "I am very happy to sign for Nottingham Forest and I hope to give all my best to help my teammates and to make all of the fans happy every game.

"All players in the world dream to play in England and I must thank Nottingham Forest for making that dream come true. I will do my best; I know it is not easy here and it is tough but I have confidence in my quality and I will do my best.

"I can't say what kind of player but I am a player that gives 100 per cent every game. I do my best, I try to help my teammates and I give everything to make the fans happy, my teammates, the manager and everybody as it is important."

The 30-year-old has a familiar face in the squad in Adlene Guedioura and Soudani says that his fellow countryman played a big part in helping him join The Reds.

He said: "Nottingham Forest is a very big club with a big history. I spoke with my friend Adlene Guedioura before I signed of course, and I asked him about the club and everything here. He said very good things about the club and he made me sure that we can do something together here and that helped me to sign here.

"I spoke with the manager a lot of times and he made my decision easier to come here. We spoke about the project at the club and he made it an easy decision to sign here.

"Of course. Having Adlene here is very important for me to adapt to the club because I am a new player and I do not know anybody except from Adlene. Of course, he will make my adaptation easier and I hope it will be like that."
