Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of Sammy Ameobi on a one-year contract.

Ameobi left Bolton at the end of last season following their relegation to League One and will now be plying his trade at the City Ground for at least the next 12 months.

The 27-year-old, who has also played for Newcastle United, Middlesbrough and Cardiff City, scored eight goals during two seasons with Bolton after he joined them permanently in 2017.

Forest boss Martin O’Neill has been eager to strengthen his attacking options and the new arrival will add some extra pace to the squad, while his creativity will also be welcomed.

Ameobi becomes the club’s first summer signing and he will join up with the Reds ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
