Wootton has joined Forest on-loan to the end of the season.
"I'm really looking forward to it - Forest is a massive club with an illustrious history," 20-year-old Wootton told MUTV. "It'll be fantastic experience and I'll look to get as many games as I can.
"They're struggling at the moment but hopefully I can help to change that and they can work their way up the table. They have a great stadium with great fans and it'll be a really good atmosphere every game."
