Serge Aurier has signed for Nottingham Forest as a free agent

Serge Aurier has signed for Nottingham Forest as a free agent. The right-back becomes the club’s 22nd signing of the transfer window. The signing, however, is subject to Visa approval.

The defender was last contracted to Villarreal, where he left upon the expiration of his contract. The club did have an option to extend the contract, which they have not triggered. Troubled by injury, he was second-choice to Juan Foyth.

The Ivorian arrives, having made 332 appearances at club level. He has represented the likes of Lens, Toulouse and Paris Saint-Germain.

Forest announced: “Nottingham Forest is delighted to confirm the signing of Ivory Coast captain Serge Aurier, subject to Visa approval.

“The right-back came through the ranks in France, playing for Lens, Toulouse and Paris Saint-Germain, winning eight major trophies including 2 Ligue 1 titles with the latter.

“The 29-year-old moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2017, spending four years in North London and making a total of 110 appearances for Spurs across all competitions, including being part of the squad that reached the 2019 Champions League final.

“The defender made 24 appearances for Villarreal last season. Including five times in the UEFA Champions League as they reached the last four of the competition.

“Welcome to Forest, Serge!”
