Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Stoke City defender Danny Collins.

Collins has now flown back to the United Kingdom from Stoke's pre-season tour in the USA in order to sign a deal with Forest.

Nottingham Forest chairman Omar Al Hasawi said: "We are delighted to bring a player of Danny's experience and calibre to the club.

"We are sure he will prove to be an excellent addition to the squad Sean O'Driscoll is assembling for the challenges that lie ahead."
