Robbie Findley played out his MLS contract in search of a European contract and appears to have secured one.
The U.S. national team striker and former Real Salt Lake forward has signed with English League Championship side Nottingham Forest, the club announced on Thursday.
Findley will join Forest pending receipt of a work permit.
Findley played out his contract with RSL last fall and will join Forest on a free transfer, assuming he is able to secure a work permit on appeal. He falls short of the number of U.S. national team appearances needed to qualify automatically for a UK work permit, but he has played in 10 of 14 U.S. matches in 2010 and stands a good chance of winning an appeal.
In other Nottingham Forest related news, Houston Dynamo midfielder/defender Geoff Cameron will be joining the club for a training stint. Forest manager Billy Davies became familiar with Cameron having spent time with Dynamo visiting his brother-in-law and former Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer (now the head coach in Portland). Davies made it clear that Cameron is going over for training, and not a trial.
What do you think of Findley joining Forest? Think he can do well? See him flopping and returning to MLS?
