Report: Andre Moritz arrives to reunite with Dougie Freedman at Nottingham Forest

Andre Moritz has arrived in England to try and push through a move to Nottingham Forest.

According to a report from the Nottingham Post, Brazilian forward Andre Moritz has arrived in England to try and finalise his move to Nottingham Forest.

Dougie Freedman's men have lost their last three games in the Championship, and the Forest boss may be looking for a new addition to help his side.

Moritz, 30, recently left Buriram United in Thailand, and is seemingly looking to make a return to English football, given that he's currently regarded as a free agent.

The Brazilian was signed by Freedman at both Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers, becoming a decent contributor in front of goal during his spells under the Scot.

Now, a third spell under Freedman appears to be on the cards, as the Nottingham Post report that Moritz has arrived in England to put the finishing touches on his move to the City Ground.

However, there are still a couple of hurdles to overcome for Forest; they must get international clearance to sign Moritz, whilst given their Financial Fair Play restrictions, they must have the deal sanctioned by The FA to register him as a new player.

Given his experience under Freedman previously, this could be a smart move from Forest, and he has already played in the Championship, meaning he should be able to make an instant impact on a short-term deal - if the move does indeed go through, as expected.

Would Moritz be a good signing for Nottingham Forest?
