Nottingham Forest new boy Apostolos Vellios has expressed his delight at moving to the City Ground on social media site Twitter.

Vellios has penned a four-year contract with the Reds, and he becomes the Midlands side's first signing of the summer.

Vellios has joined Forest from Iraklis Thessaloniki in a deal worth £1 million (BBC Sport), with new manager Philippe Montanier starting to assemble his squad for next campaign. 

Vellios scored 11 goals in the Greek Super League last season, and will provide Forest with a physical presence up-front.

The Greek forward has already tasted English football as a youngster, when he played for both Everton and Blackpool.

Vellios’ arrival at Forest increases their striking options considerably for the upcoming campaign.

The Reds struggled for goals last season, but the addition of Vellios and the return of Britt Assombalonga from injury, means that their attacking players are looking much stronger.
