Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of Hull City striker Matty Fryatt for a free transfer according to the Nottingham Post.
The 28-year old striker has been on the Hull fringes following competition from the likes of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long and has only been able to feature and impact on cup games.
He joined Hull from Leicester in 2010 for £1 million and during his four-year stay at the club he made 72 appearances and scored 31 goals.
The striker has been a long-term target for Forest who have previously attempted to sign the striker twice but to no avail.
Now they have succeeded in signing him following Fryatt snubbing a stay with Premier League side Hull City to join Nottingham Forest.
Forest manager Stuart Pearce has shown some signs of intent and is looking to add more players to his team in order to push for promotion next season.
In other news, Excelsior striker Lars Veldwijk is expected to be announced as a Forest player later on today on a three-year deal for a £500,000 fee.
