Speaking to the Nottingham Post, the former City favourite says the lure of first-team football wasnâ€™t the reason for signing for Forest, but the repeated approaches by several Reds managers was too hard to turn down this time around.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t even that (the lure of first team football), no. I was not guaranteed a place at Hull, but I wonâ€™t be at Forest either. It does not work like that in football now,â€ť he said.
â€śYou have to deserve your place. You would hope that I would get more games here, but nothing is guaranteed.
â€śI hope I will be involved more here, we will have to see. If I give it my all, if I do as well as I hope I can do, then I hope I will be involved in a lot more games.â€ť
He continued: â€śIt was about nine years ago that it (Fryatt signing for Forest) was first mentioned, I think, when Gary Megson was manager.
â€śIt has been a long time coming!
â€śThere have been a few Forest managers since (who have had an interest). I started when I was at Walsall, before I moved to Leicester.
â€śI am glad it has finally happened and I am here now.â€ť
