Derek McInnes on Paul Anderson
“He has his best years ahead of him and we've beaten a number of other clubs to his signature”
Anderson started his career at Hull's academy before joining Liverpool, where he spent three years but failed to make a first-team appearance.
He was loaned to Swansea then Forest, where he signed a permanent deal in 2009 and has since played 104 games.
But he only managed 19 appearances last season and City manager Derek McInnes said: "It was frustrating for him last year not playing as many games as he would have liked.
"We've been able to pick him up on a free transfer, a lad desperate to play regularly again.
"He is a player with bags of potential, who knows the Championship with years of experience in the division and arrives at a decent age.
"He has real pace, can play in two or three different roles and is a good addition to strengthen our team and squad.
"He has his best years ahead of him and we've beaten a number of other clubs to his signature."
