Nottingham Forest confirm Villa reject McClaren as new manager

Steve McClaren has been named new manager of Nottingham Forest.

McClaren has signed a three-year contract at the City Ground and takes over from Billy Davies, who was sacked yesterday.

Forest chief executive Mark Arthur said on Forest's official website: "The club moved quickly to secure his services as it is rare for a manager and coach of his undoubted calibre to be available.

"Steve has a proven track record of coaching and managing at club level, having played a key role in helping Manchester United secure the Champions League trophy [in 1999], three Premier League titles and an FA Cup; guided Middlesbrough to the League Cup and also to the final of the UEFA Cup and led FC Twente to their first ever Dutch title.

"We are delighted to have him on board at the City Ground."
