Midfielder Simon Gillett joins Nottingham Forest on free transfer
Nottingham Forest have signed former Doncaster Rovers midfielder Simon Gillett on a free transfer.
Gillett, 26, who played in Forest's 3-1 pre-season friendly victory against Aston Villa on Saturday, has signed a two-year deal at the City Ground.
"My contract came to an end at Doncaster and I've been looking for a club and biding my time since then," Gillett told the Forest website.
"I'm absolutely delighted to get it done. I couldn't be happier."
Forest boss Sean O'Driscoll managed Gillett at Doncaster and the player admitted that relationship influenced his decision.
"The club speaks for itself with a great stadium, great fans and great history," added Gillett.
"But the manager played a massively important part for me as well. I know how he works and I feel he can get the best out of me."
