Nottingham Forest break transfer fee record

Nottingham Forest have signed Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin for a club-record £17m.

The 24-year-old Nigeria forward joins the newly-promoted club on a five-year deal.

Awoniyi scored 20 goals in 43 games across all competitions for the Bundesliga club last season.

“It’s always been my dream to play in the Premier League,” he said Awoniyi.

“Having spoken to Steve Cooper about our ambitions and looking at Forest, with its great history, it’s a club that I want to be part of.”
