Omar Richards: Nottingham Forrest complete transfer of Bayern Munich left-back

Omar Richards has signed a four-year deal at the City Ground and is Forest’s fifth summer signing of the window; the 24-year-old moves back to England a year after moving to Bayern Munich from Reading; Forest are preparing for their first Premier League campaign since 1999

Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Bayern Munich and former England U21 left-back Omar Richards.

The 24-year-old defender moves back to England a year after moving to Bayern from Reading, with Richards signing a four-year deal at the City Ground.

Richards is Forest’s fifth summer arrival and the left-back will link up with Steve Cooper’s squad ahead of Tuesday’s friendly with Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

“I’m thrilled to return to England by joining Nottingham Forest at such an exciting time,” Richards told Forest’s official website. “The club has enjoyed an incredible last few months and there’s great ambitions for the Premier League return.

“I’ve played against Forest in the past and they get such great backing from their fans, whilst the City Ground is an amazing place that I can now call home.”

Richards is set to be one of two full-back signings for Forest this window as the newly-promoted side are close to completing a £16m deal for Liverpool full-back Neco Williams.
