Davies returns as Forest boss

Championship Nottingham Forest have re-appointed Billy Davies as their new manager, just 20 months after he was sacked. Davies has signed a three-and-half-year deal and told BBC East Midlands Today: "I am delighted to be coming back to finish the task that my staff and I started. It feels like I am coming home."

Former Forest coaches David Kelly and Julian Darby have also returned.

Chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi told the club website: "I'm delighted to welcome Billy back to our club and really look forward to working closely with him.

"Billy has unfinished business with the Reds and we know how hungry he is for success. In returning to the City Ground we believe his leadership will help us fulfil our ambition of making it to the Premier League.

"Billy is a Forest legend who needs no introduction to our loyal fans. We know how excited he is to pick up where he left off last time and we will back him 110% - this is a very exciting appointment."
